Excerpt

" (John 6:38) "My teaching is not Mine" (John 7:16) "I am not come of Myself" (John 7:28) "I do nothing of Myself" (John 8:28) "I have not come of Myself, but He sent Me" (John 8: 42). "I seek not Mine own glory" (John 8:50) "The words that I say, I speak not from Myself" (John 14: 10). "The word which ye hear is not Mine" (John 14: 24).

These words open to us the deepest roots of Christ's life and work. They tell us how it was that the Almighty God was able to work His mighty redemptive work through Him. They show what Christ counted the state of heart which became Him as the Son of the Father. They teach us what the essential nature and life is of that redemption which Christ accomplished and now communicates. It is this: He was nothing, that God might be all. He resigned Himself with His will and His powers entirely for the Father to work in Him. Of His own power, His own will, and His own glory, of His whole mission with all His works and His teaching, of all this He said, It is not I; I am nothing

Outside of the Word of God, The meditative spirit-led words of Andrew Murray have profoundly changed my life like no other book. Humility is the "secret" that unlocks God's power and the source of true happiness.

Murray says it best:

"The creature has not only to look back to the origin and first beginning of existence,and acknowledge that it there owes everything to God; its chief care,its highest virtue, its only happiness,now and through all eternity, is to present itself an empty vessel, in which God can dwell and manifest His power and goodness."

This book has given my heart a new lease on life.

I read and re-read it over and over. It may be the most important book (next to the Bible) that I have ever read.

I thank God for Andrew Murray

Humility & Holiness so closely linked! Thank you for Murray's insights, and for allowing me to "stumble" across this book that cried out for me to read it! Father, teach me how to walk in purity of heart, mind and deed that I can live before Your Presence and be in continual fellowship with You.

Let these truths take root in my heart and mind, and may my life be a pleasing sacrifice.

Not only do I long to see you face to face, but let me live my life now with this reality... and look forward to the day, that you would say of me, and all those who love You, "They will walk with Me; dressed in white; for they are worthy." (Rev 3:4)
