Murray: the beauty of holiness

Friday, April 8, 2022
    Commemoration of William Augustus Muhlenberg of New York, Priest, 1877
For this is what the high and lofty One says—
    he who lives forever, whose name is holy:
“I live in a high and holy place,
    but also with him who is contrite and lowly in spirit,
to revive the spirit of the lowly
    and to revive the heart of the contrite.”
    —Isaiah 57:15 (NIV)
    Humility is the bloom and the beauty of holiness. The chief mark of counterfeit holiness is its lack of humility.
    ... Andrew Murray (1828-1917), Humility: the Beauty of Holiness, New York: Anson D. F. Randolph & Co., 1895, p. 74 (see the book)
    See also Isa. 57:15; Mic. 6:8; Matt. 18:2-5; 23:12; Luke 7:6-9; Rom. 11:17-18; Jas. 1:9-10
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You provide the just restraint for my pride.
