• “There’s a big difference between a life that’s a performance, and a life that’s an offering. One holds us captive. The other sets us free.” – Susie Larson

Making Nothing by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 10/20/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Do you ever find yourself trying to use your position to get what you want?

“They won’t argue with me; I’m the head of the committee. We’ll get what we want.”

Nancy: Philippians 2:6-7 tells us how Jesus acted when He came to earth. It says He “did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant.”

Jesus didn’t cling to His rights as God or boast about who He was. Think about all the times in the Gospels when people didn’t understand Him, recognize Him, or respect Him. But He never used His position to overpower them because He came to love and to serve.

If we want to be like Jesus, we need to remember what it says in 1 Corinthians: “Love does not boast.”

Have you been throwing your weight around, or are you spreading Christ’s love?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “Genuine revival will not be popular with everyone…it will divide…between those who want to build their own kingdom and those who want to build the Kingdom of God, between those who are attached to their own ideas and those who are committed to the Word of God” – Nancy DeMoss
