Pondering Humility.

Hannah and I are reading through a book called Humility by Andrew Murray. Here’s an excerpt I need more time to think about.

“[Humility] is not something which we bring to God, or He bestows; it is simply the sense of entire nothingness, which comes when we see how truly God is all, and in which we make way for God to be all.

When the creature realizes that this is the true nobility, and consents to be with his will, his mind, and his affections, the form, the vessel, in which the life and glory of God are to work and manifest themselves, he sees that humility is simply acknowledging the truth of his position as creature, and yielding to God His place.”

If you have any insight / advice /  just want to ponder this with me, I’d love to sit down with coffee / on the quad / over dinner / over the phone. This concept of “becoming nothing” in our humility is challenging and overwhelming. I don’t know quite how to take it in and live it out.
