Yielding to God his place

"The call to humility has been too little regarded in the Church, because its true nature and importance has been too little apprehended. It is not a 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." (Andrew Murray, Humility)

Over the year I have quoted Andrew Murray many times from his book Humility. With that being said to end the year I would like to do another give away. This time I will be giving away a copy of Andrew Murray's book Humility. To be placed in the drawing simply e-mail me at jrldailythoughts@yahoo.com and ask to be in the Humility drawing. You can enter the drawing until 2009 ends. On Friday I will announce the winner. Once again thanks to all who read this blog or receive the e-mails.

Grace upon grace,
JRL
