The Bulging File – Nancy Leigh DeMoss 01/23/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Why is it so easy for us to steal glory that belongs to God?

In 1995 I spoke to a group of Christian leaders on the subject of humility. God graciously used that message in a powerful way.

Following that event, many people wrote to express their appreciation for what I had shared. The message was reprinted and distributed in many forms. In the process, I found myself facing a whole new battle with pride about my message on humility.

I kept many of those letters in file folders. God convicted me that those bulging files were just fueling my pride.

Finally, at the suggestion of a wise friend, I took the entire contents of those files and burned them in the fireplace. You know, with that single step of obedience and humility, God brought wonderful new freedom to my heart.

Do you have that freedom? Is there anything fueling your pride?

  • “If we do anything to further the kingdom of God, we may expect to find what Christ found on that road – abuse, indifference, injustice, misunderstanding, trouble of some kind. Take it. Why not? To that you were called. If we think of the glorious fact that we are on the same path with Jesus, we might see a rainbow.” – Elisabeth Elliot
