allows Christ’s life to be perfected in us. But pride, the opposite
of humility, works death in us. To be exalted, honored and recognized
was the desire of Lucifer. He was not content with what God
had chosen for him so he decided to exalt himself: “I will ascend
into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God”
(Isaiah 14: 13). Because of this Lucifer fell, rejected by God
because of the pride in his heart. All sin originated in pride
and self-exaltation. But our salvation originated in Christ
humbling Himself by His death on the cross."
