But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.

Christ’s sacrifice on the cross ought to be profoundly humbling to us. It is with this spirit of humility that we come to Christ in daily prayer and meditation. It is because Christ humbled himself before the Father in the Garden of Gethsemane. Humbled himself before Pontius Pilate when being judged. Christ, even, humbled himself before the crowd who roared loudly to have Barnabas released instead of Christ.
Christ humbled himself to the point of shedding his own blood for each one of us. Through Christ, we walk with him in fellowship throughout our lives. Each day we approach Christ, let us meditate on the sacrifice and His grace. Let us be humble before Him in prayer. And, let us be amazed at the sacrifice he had offered us.
