To Be Empty

by SomeGirl on December 5, 2011 · 10 comments

“You are, at this moment, as filled with Christ as you want to be.”

Powerful words spoken by my pastor.

“To the degree that you give every area of your life to Him, God fills you with Himself.”

If you are full of self, you will be empty of Christ.

If you are empty of self, you can be full of Christ.

It requires surrender. Dying. Emptying yourself.

Saying, “Not my will, but YOURS be done.”

Lord, I want to be empty of myself and filled with You!

Well said. I think we all struggle with dying to self but as we yield more and more to Christ, he helps us with that.

And thank God for his mercy :-)

Yes, thanks be to God for his mercy!

Awesome!! And so true! I want to be filled with Christ, and so I empty myself at His feet.

SomeGirl

Love that!
