Jesus entertained no desire whatsoever to prove his superiority to his followers by statements such as: “I do only what I see my Father is doing. I always do the things that are pleasing to my Father. If you have seen me you have seen the Father. The Father and I are one. I can do nothing of myself” On the contrary, those proclamations were meant to prove His commonness and that God is a common God whose life finds its glorious expression in common people. As an example of us His intention was to stir us to the same faith He expressed. Jesus said: “Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” Humbleness finds its final definition is Jesus’ proclamations about His oneness with the Father. “Learn to live in my reality of truth and you will find true rest.”
