    A must read for those ready to carry the cross

    This book really helps you see the necessity of humility. Through reading this book i found myself wanting less of this world and wanting more from above. The main part was wanting less of this world, the relationships, competitions, heartaches, you are free from all that. An essential read.

    The work is timeless and applicable in every person┬┐s life, Christina and non-Christian alike.

    Humility, taut at 110 pages, is more than a philosophical look at a subject. With a Preface by Donna Partow, renowned author of Becoming a Vessel God Can Use, Andrew Murray manages to succinctly, and with thought-provoking efficiency, delivers twelve chapters that, seemingly, completely cover the bases of humility. <br><br> Biblical verses are clearly the backbone of Murray¿s writings. It is also clear Murray¿s admiration of our humble Lord, Jesus Christ. In chapter three Murray writes that Jesus¿ ¿humility was simply the surrender of himself to God, to allow Him to do in Him what He pleased, regardless of what men might say of Him or do to Him.¿<br><br> Jesus Christ is often referred to as the Lamb of God. For the longest time, I did not understand the term. In the Old Testament, when people sinned, they needed to make a sacrificial offering¿usually a lamb¿to God, to have their sins forgiven. But then God sent his only son, Jesus Christ, to earth as a Man. And as part of His plan, allowed His Son to be crucified for our sins. Jesus became the ¿lamb¿ sacrifice to God, so the God would forgive all of us our sins, past, present and future. This sacrifice inspires people globally to want to be like Jesus. What would Jesus do? <br><br> Murray believes that by humbling ourselves, we are most like Jesus. He says, in Luke 22:27, ¿I am among you as one who serves.¿ And in Matthew 20:27-28, Jesus is quoted as saying, ¿Whoever wants to be first must be your slave¿just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve.¿ <br><br> Murray¿s novel is a sobering look at how most people lives are lived full of pride and empty of humility. Murray writes, ¿Humility is a virtue that only comes in power when the fullness of the (Holy) Spirit makes us partakers of the indwelling Christ and He lives within us.¿ He writes, ¿Pride rules in us with incredible power; it is ourselves, our very nature¿¿ <br><br> It was Thomas A. Kempis who said, ¿The more humble a man is in himself, the more obedient toward God, the wiser will he be in all things, and the more shall his soul be at peace.¿ <br><br> The reoccurring message is clear. To have a more personal relationship with God while still alive on earth, the more humble people need to be. Pride is evil. Anything we do should be done in honor of God. 1 John 4:20 says, ¿For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen.¿ If we cannot be humble to the people around us, to strangers, then we cannot be humbled in God¿s eyes. Murray writes that ¿(t)he seemingly insignificant acts of daily life are the tests of eternity, because they prove what spirit possesses us. It is in our most unguarded moments that we truly show who we are and what we are made of. To know a truly humble person, you must follow that one in the common course of daily life. This is what Jesus taught.¿ <br><br> Bernard of Clairvaux said, ¿It is no great thing to be humble when you are brought low; but to be humble when you are praised is a great and rare achievement.¿ Humility is a powerful book. It cannot be read cover to cover in one sitting. There is too much within that needs thoughtful digestion and reflection. The work is timeless and applicable in every person¿s life, Christina and non-Christian alike. The word of God is commanding. The actions of His Son, amazing. <br><br> Book Summary: When Jesus ¿made himself nothing ¿ taking the nature of a servant,¿ He modeled for all believers true humility. Andrew Murray calls this ¿our true nobility¿ and ¿the distinguishing feature of discipleship.¿ With insightful, penetrating clarity, Murray calls all Christians to turn from pride, empty themselves, and study the character of Christ to be filled with His grace. Humility . . . the secret of redemption in the life of Jesus in daily life and holiness and happiness. Often called the best work on humility ever written. Andrew Murr
