• “How different the world would look, how different the state of our nation would be, if there were more sanctified priestly souls! These are souls who have the power to bless, for they intercede with sanctified hearts. They never begin their daily time of intercessory prayer without having first brought to the cross all that is unholy in their lives, so that their old self can be crucified there with Jesus, the sacrificial Lamb.” – Basilea Schlink

Admission of Weakness by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 12/14/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: I once talked with a group of full-time Christian workers on the topic, “Potential Pitfalls of Ministry.” I was tempted to speak as if I never fell in the pitfalls—like I had it all together.

The truth though was at that point in my life, I was perilously close to several of those pitfalls myself.

I had to admit to those Christian workers that I needed this message as much as anyone. As a speaker, I needed to be honest about my own weakness and my need for God’s grace.

Psalm 138:6 says, “Though the LORD is on high, yet He regards the lowly; but the proud He knows from afar.” What opportunity has God given you today to humble yourself and express your need?
