Jesus shows us how to walk with God. Even though he was equal to God, he chose to humble himself in prayer and rely on God’s power. Our human pride makes us strive, push, and work to get things done, but we end up missing out on the humility that comes with walking with God. Humility is the core of Jesus’s relationship with God, and it’s what he taught the New Testament church to have. Check out this part of our series about how Jesus changed the world to learn to walk with God in powerful humility like Jesus did.
While Jesus was here on earth, he offered prayers and pleadings, with a loud cry and tears, to the one who could rescue him from death. And God heard his prayers because of his deep reverence for God.
