Ödmjuka hjärtan


"The Father reveals the kingdom only to the humble in heart:

At that very time He rejoiced greatly in the Holy Spirit, and said, `I praise You, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and intelligent and have revealed them to infants. Yes, Father, for this way was well-pleasing in Your sight.' Luke 10:21 NASB

If we are to see the fullness of the kingdom, there is no alternative. We must humble ourselves under God’s mighty hand, yielding those things we hold dear: our reputations and ministries, our abilities and successes — in fact, our very motivation for living.

It is time for us to be aligned exclusively to the one who made himself of no reputation – the servant-King – and embrace the more excellent way.
