God-Like Humility

However, when He,
the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will
not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He
will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is
Mine and declare it to you.  All things
that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and
declare it to you
(John 16:13-15).
There is a nugget of truth hidden in these verses. God
the Father occupies the highest position in the universe as the Most High God!
Yet, he defers to the Son and elevates Him. Jesus was born into humility,
though He was Lord of all. Jesus as Lord and sustainer of all, doesn’t attract
attention to Himself, but defers to the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit does not
attract attention to Himself, but His main goal is to magnify and exalt Jesus.
How frequently do we believers get upset if we are not
recognized for our efforts and achievements! This human pride thing runs very
deep, and it takes the Holy Spirit to root it out of us!
Let’s take our example from The Father, Son, and Holy
Spirit. Let’s refuse to draw attention to ourselves. Let’s refuse the spirit of
pride that dominates the world. Let’s choose to stay in the background and give
all glory for anything accomplished to the Father and the Son. It’s the way the
Holy Spirit would want it to be.
