In scripture, the only trait Jesus proclaimed about Himself was that He was humble (Matthew 11:29). The very first thing John the Baptist proclaims about Jesus is that He is a "Lamb", a servant who would die for the sins of the world.

The incarnation of Jesus openly declares to us all that God is a humble servant. Even in judgment at the end of the age, He will be acting as a servant.

Looking at the humility of the Godhead produces a longing to be like Him and empowers us to walk in the same manner. In these two sessions of notes, Stuart Greaves develops these truths...

Perhaps the humility of God in the incarnation is one of the most considered aspects of Advent and Christmas. How could One surrounded by perfection and beauty descend to the lowest place and be born in a filthy animal feeding trough? How could one so highly exalted stoop so low to be the Servant of all?

To rightly understand His humility in becoming a human, we must be informed biblically on where He dwelt and how He was worshipped before He took on flesh. Only with this backdrop are we rightly prepared to experience the potency of His emotions and desires that flooded His...

Few things about the life of Christ are more captivating than His meekness, and still fewer things about the incarnation of Jesus are as potent as His meekness. How outlandish is the thought that the very Word of life, the One who spoke the cosmos into existence, lay in animal feed crying, completely powerless to speak any word at all? As with the other things we’ve already looked at in this series, that simple fact should propel our hearts into a surge of devotion and worship. In pondering the...

One of the highest expressions of God’s love is His meekness and servanthood. As the glory of God is seen plainly and perfectly in the face of Jesus (2 Corinthians 4:6), we are beckoned in to see God’s meekness, humility, and servanthood throughout every moment of His life. Jesus was fully satisfied in taking on flesh and emptying Himself of so great an exaltation (Philippians 2:5-8). It was not something He resentfully or grudgingly achieved. He never had nor will ever have regrets about becoming poor for our sake (2 Corinthians 8:9). From the most mundane of days to the climax of...

In this age, so many are looking to make a name for themselves. From politicians and athletes to musicians and businesspeople, the human heart is always focused on self-promotion and gain. Our pride causes us to seek greatness through our own means. And no matter how much we achieve in this age, we always leave unsatisfied and longing for more. But what does exaltation, greatness, and satisfaction in God’s eyes look like?

Contrary to our fallen understanding of it, God’s idea of greatness is living from the heart in servanthood, humility, and meekness. In...

The Lord is clearly moving in an unusual way in our world today. From churches and college campuses in Kansas City, Texas, and Atlanta to New England, Redding, California, and many places even across the globe, there is an unprecedented move of the Holy Spirit taking place. God is revealing Himself to His church as the joyful Father that loves to heal bodies and restore our hearts to the place where we truly believe in His love for us.

I love the extended meetings we’ve been having here at IHOP-KC. The Holy Spirit touches us in so many different ways. The Lord has healed many...

It’s so easy to read the scriptures become overly familiar with them – so much so that we end up floating on the surface of the waters and never plunging into the depths of them. That’s been my recent experience with John 4 when Jesus speaks to the Samaritan woman by Jacob’s well. Jesus asks the woman for a drink from the well, and the woman responds with shock because Jews never have dealings with Samaritans in the way they were interacting at that point. Jesus responds in such a stunning way:

Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it...
