from Chapter 3
Humility in the Life of Jesus
[Jesus] teaches us where true humility takes its rise and finds its strength—in the knowledge that it is God who worketh all in all, that our place is to yield to Him in perfect resignation and dependence, in full consent to be and to do nothing of ourselves.Humility by Andrew Murray © 2012 Fig Books, p. 12
At the beginning of the year, I decided to start a new series of quotes from books I’ve been reading. These books have made a difference in my life, and I thought you might benefit from some handfuls of purpose being dropped in front of you as well.
The series began nearly three weeks ago, without introduction and without explanation. I simply jumped in. There’s nothing wrong with that, I suppose, but now that I’m changing things up a bit, I’d like to tell you what’s on my mind. You see, my goal is to share twelve quotes from each book, but I’ve come to realize that spending twelve weeks sharing from each book is a very long time. That said, I’ve decided to step it up and give you two quotes each week instead of one. They will appear on Wednesday and Thursday. Sometimes it will be just the quote by itself, and other times I’ll include some comments of my own.
The featured image for each book review/quote comes directly from the cover of the book itself, making it easy to recognize which book I’m referencing.
At some point, with each book, I intend to also give you my review of the book, and I’ll give you a link to where you may purchase your own copy, as the purpose for sharing these quotes is to encourage you to get a copy and read it for yourself, whether you purchase it or check it out from your local library. I promise you will not be disappointed with any of them.
