Palm Sunday: Cleric Urges Christians To Emulate Christ’s Humility


A cleric, Rev. Fr. Simon Tizlee, yesterday urged Christians in Nigeria and the world in general to emulate the humility of Jesus Christ.
Tizlee gave the advice in his sermon to mark the 2019 Palm Sunday at the Church of Assumption Parish, Chongo’Pyeng, Jos.
Palm Sunday is the last Sunday before Easter, which signifies the triumphant entry of Jesus into Jerusalem.
Tizlee who is on a visit at the Parish said Jesus humbled and offered himself freely to save mankind, but God in turn exalted and made him king.
The cleric noted that humility remained the only way to greatness, hence Christians should humble themselves at all time.
“Like a lamb Jesus was led to the slaughter house and was even jarred by many, but he never uttered a word.
“He offered himself to suffer, not for himself, but for others. He humbled and emptied himself to be a servant. This is humility par excellence.
Tizlee also advised Christians to sacrifice for the sake of others and put on the apron of communal living, adding that such virtues makes the world and interesting place.
