1st Book for 2013 - HUMILITY

If you know me well you know I am a fan of Andrew Murray.  One of my church friends was sharing about this book which she was reading and brought it to me last Sunday. Mickey & I devoured it and I bought my own copy because this is definitely a re-read and underline book.

Some quotes: 
Chapter 6 Humility in the Life of Jesus ~ "The secret-of which all nature and every person and, above all every child of God, is to be the witness-is that he is nothing but a vessel, a channel, through which the living God can manifest the riches of His wisdom, power, and goodness.......we know that we have nothing but what we receive, and we bow in deepest humility to wait upon God for it."  

Chapter 6 Humility for Daily Life ~ "The humble man feels no jealousy or envy.  He can praise God when others are preferred and blessed before him.  He can bear to hear others praised and himself forgotten, because in God's presence he has learned to say with Paul, "I be nothing" 2 Corinthians 12:11 

Chapter 7 Humility and Holiness ~ "Pride can clothe itself in the garments of praise or of penitence."

I would highly recommend this book.  Be prepared to see how Humility is so needed, and neglected, if we are truly going to be the light and salt that God has called us to be.

Sounds like a book that has some real application in our lives. A few years ago I went to a 24 hour fast and study that focused on pride. It was something that really impressed how much of a foothold pride has in our lives. It really brought home to me how my pride leads me to sin.
I'll have to look for this one.
