This is a unique question and I welcome the opportunity to speak of the humility and perfection of the Lord Jesus Christ.  Let’s start out by considering the words of the Lord Jesus Himself.  In Matthew 11:28-30, He said, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”  Here, Christ tells us that He is “lowly in heart.”  The word ‘lowly’ is translated ‘humble’ in James 4:6 and 1 Peter 5:5.  The Apostle Paul speaks of the Lord Jesus in His humility in Philippians 2:8, “And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.”  What an incredible act of humility.  The very Son of God humbled Himself.  He obeyed the leading of God and went to the cross to die for the sins of the world.

Let’s look at a couple of verses where the humility of the Lord is not mentioned by name, but it is certainly on display.  Mark 15:19-20 tells us, “And they smote him on the head with a reed, and did spit upon him, and bowing their knees worshipped him. And when they had mocked him, they took off the purple from him, and put his own clothes on him, and led him out to crucify him.”  These unbelieving people beat the Lord Jesus, by spitting on him they illustrated the greatest contempt for Him; they mocked Him by ‘pretending’ to worship Him.  Yet, in the face of all this, the Lord was humble.  He endured all this suffering at the hands of man and then He went to the cross and suffered at the hands of God.  What humility!

What about Christ being blameless?  The word ‘blameless’ literally means to be above reproach and not being accused of sin due to your behavior.  Let’s read of the Lord Jesus in 1 Peter 1:18-19, “Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.”  Here, ‘without blemish’ literally means to be ‘without blame.’  Even Pilate had to admit about the Lord Jesus in Luke 23:4, “…I find no fault in this man.”  Under the greatest scrutiny, Pilate found Christ to be both humble and blameless.

Speaking of the Lord Jesus as our High Priest, we read in Hebrews 7:26, “For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens.”  In this verse, ‘harmless’ literally means to ‘be blameless.’  Before closing these thoughts, let’s consider Mark 14:55-59, “And the chief priests and all the council sought for witness against Jesus to put him to death; and found none. For many bare false witness against him, but their witness agreed not together. And there arose certain, and bare false witness against him, saying, We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands. But neither so did their witness agree together.”  This was utter confusion as the chief priests and council sought to find a way to properly accuse the Lord Jesus with a crime.  Looking for faults and sin in the Lord Jesus, those religious leaders, “found none.”  They had to hire people to come in and lie about the Lord Jesus, yet their lies began to contradict each other.  Although they would not admit it, I’m sure that some of those religious leaders must have said in their hearts, “I find no fault in this man.”

As we consider the humility and blamelessness of our blessed Savior, let us each one consider the words of the Apostle Paul in Philippians 2:5, “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus.”  As believers on the Lord Jesus, may we strive to be more and more like Him!  (198.4)
