Murray: the humblest

Thursday, July 17, 2014
    [Jesus:] “Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all.”
    —Mark 10:43-44 (NIV)
    Jesus the Holy One is the humble one: the holiest will ever be the humblest. There is none holy but God: we have as much of holiness as we have of God. And according to what we have of God will be our real humility, because humility is nothing but the disappearance of self in the vision that God is all. The holiest will be the humblest.
    ... Andrew Murray (1828-1917), Humility: the Beauty of Holiness, New York: Anson D. F. Randolph & Co., 1895, p. 78 (see the book)
    See also Mark 10:43-44; Matt. 5:3; 11:29; 18:2-4; 20:26-28; 23:12; Mark 9:35-37; Luke 9:46-48; 14:10-11; 22:26; John 13:14-16; Rom. 12:3; 1 Cor. 1:28-29; Eph. 4:2; 5:21; Phil. 2:3; Jas. 1:9-10; 4:6,10; 1 Pet. 5:5-6
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant me a more humble heart.
