Read Mark 9:33-37
35 And he sat down and called the twelve. And he said to them, “If anyone would be first, he must be last of all and servant of all.” – Mark 9:35 ESV
Hello family, The word empty has taken on two different definitions for me but they both lead to being empty. The first is emptiness of self. We all want to be known as great to some degree or another. However true greatness does not come by doing things the worlds way.
I read the above scripture and I heard the word empty. Empty of what? Self! Empty of self! When we empty our self of of us, God can pour himself in us. Being great in Gods kingdom means having a servants heart, being submitted to Gods will.
Lord empty us of our self. Help us to put this flesh under foot, putting aside all that we want so that we may be filled up with what you want. Let us continue to be empty vessels ready and willing to do whatever you call on us to do. In Jesus name Amen
Much Love & God Bless
