• “Keep on running even when you have had a fall. The victory wreath is won by him who does not stay down, but always gets up again, grasps the banner of faith and keeps on running in the assurance that Jesus is Victor.” – Basilea Schlink

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.
