Devotionals Daily: A Year with Jesus

From Grace for the Moment®: Morning and Evening Devotions by Max Lucado

Down on Your Knees

God is against the proud, but he gives grace to the humble.

—James 4:6

            A small cathedral outside Bethlehem marks the supposed birthplace of Jesus. Behind a high altar in the church is a cave, a little cavern lit by silver lamps.

            You can enter the main edifice and admire the ancient church. You can also enter the quiet cave where a star embedded in the floor recognizes the birth of the King. There is one stipulation, however. You have to stoop. The door is so low you can’t go in standing up. The same is true of the Christ. You can see the world standing tall, but to witness the Savior, you have to get [down] on your knees.

The Applause of Heaven

To witness the Savior, you have to get down on your knees. Explain what that statement means. How do we apply this to our attitudes and actions?
