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."
