Godlike Humility

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 16:14-15).

There is a nugget of truth hidden in this verse. 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 believers get upset if they are not recognized for their 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.
