True Greatness - Fruitfulness and Forsaking Honor - Wednesday, September 11th

True Greatness - Fruitfulness and Forsaking Honor - Wednesday, September 11th

I do not receive glory from men …. How can you believe, when you receive glory from one another and you do not seek the glory that is from the one and only God? John 5:41, 44

Instead, take the lowest place at the foot of the table. Then when your host sees you, he will come and say, “Friend, we have a better place for you!” Then you will be honored in front of all the other guests. For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted. Luke 14:10-11

For thus says the high and exalted One Who lives forever, whose name is Holy, I dwell on a high and holy place, and also with the contrite and lowly of spirit in order to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite. Isaiah 57:15

Today's thoughts from today's verses:

Having the foundation of humility in place that we talked about earlier makes all the difference. It happens when we come before the Lord and say, “yes, I choose to die to self so that my world is “Christ” and living life is all about Him rather than my world being “self” and living life being all about me. This initial surrender becomes an act of commitment to which we look back in order to be renewed in the humility we need for going forward with the great life in which the Lord actually produces genuine spiritual fruit. We won’t be exempt from self and pride, but we will be able to see a pattern of victory in our lives that leads to true and consistent fruitfulness. As we become less and less oriented to self and self-promotion, not only will the pursuit of honor disappear from our agenda but we will be able to handle graciously those situations when expressions of honor come our way from others.

Today's prayer response from today's thoughts:

Lord, I have made the commitment of initial surrender and I am seeking the renewal of humility I need for going forward with a zeal for exalting and honoring you and not myself. May genuine spiritual fruit pervade my life as I humbly walk with you and together we navigate the tricky path of human activity and relationships. Lord, I love you, worship you, and bless you. Amen!
