Humility and worship
In the journey of Jesus Christ to the earth, he encountered certain people who doubted his messianic presence and never want to listen to or believe his teaching even when they saw him perform miracles.
Mattew 21vs32 NIV
For John came to you to show you the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him, but the tax collectors and the prostitutes did. And even after you saw this, you did not repent and believe him.
From this verse it's obvious that the chief priest and teachers of the law never want to accept Jesus as the messiah sent from God, What were their expectation of the messianic personality? What were they expecting the messiah to do for them?
They never believe him nor accept his words as authority and the truth, they see him as deceptive and will lead the people in their into errors and damnation. They also felt his influence on people is going beyond what they could imagine.
They want to prove that he's truly the sent one, but wonder if he could be the one owing to some factors, e.g. his background, birth etc. They accepted that the messiah would perform miracles, such as healing the sick, making the lame walk, raising the cripple, and restoring sight to the blind and deaf. Can we say that the messiah is expected to be of royal descent too and to sit on the throne of King or Emperor? But, no, Jesus never went this route; instead, he portrayed to the world: "

He's the saviour and messiah in his actions and words to his disciples." He brought to life the reality of the scripture they'd all been reading and even made them understand that the scripture was written about him.
He shows to the world that he never rejects sinners as long as they are willing to accept him and bring change to their lives.
He never discriminated in any form against the poor and needy, even if it went against the Jewish law and commands. Meanwhile, his coming was to bring to knowledge of Christ the Savior, according to John 3vs 16 Kjv, for God so loved the word that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believed in him should not perish but have everlasting life.
The more reasons he have greater number of followers among the poor and common people. Jesus also maintained and remained righteous and holy all through his life on earth.
Jesus portrayed to everyone what the life of a leader and minister should be and how they should live a daily life approved by God and himself, living daily by the spirit he said those that must worship me must do so in spirit and truth.
He distinctly shows us the life God never wanted to be found among men; adultery, fornication, lies, idolatry, drunkeness, uncleanness, lasciviouness, hatred, wrath, seditions, variances, witchcraft, strife, heresies, envying, murders, revelling, etc.
Jesus brings to our understanding this work of the flesh and its manifestations, and how this should not be found in people's lives and in Christendom to come.
He gave us the gospel to preach and witness to nations, and he gave us life to live by. He gave man his spirit to guide and comfort us in his knowledge, demystifying mysteries and opening the channel of grace for us to operate by his mercy. What a loving savior. All for the sake of saving souls from eternal damnation in hell, and for this reason he implores us to remain steadfast in the liberty that Christ has purchased for us, and not be entangled again in the yoke of bandage.Galatians 5 vs. 1. And remember what he said in Matthew 11:28? Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Load of bitterness, anger, failures etc. This is a call from Jesus to everyone who might be passing through some circumstances that are beyond their powers to handle or feeling like they are in bondage or lock up in issue they can't phantom way out. Jesus says, "Come unto me and lay your burden on him and humble yourself, repenting of your sins by asking for forgiveness and believing in him."
God is more interested in you far more than anythings else and we are meant to worship with all our being.
