Humility.

I know this is one of the reasons why the Lord brought me to the mission field, to learn humility. I see how much pride and selfishness I have. It is time to be purified of these things. It is not all about me. Through many situations and circumstances, I feel the Lord is trying to teach me to be humble, to make myself more like Christ and be of no reputation. I must take on the nature of a servant, as just He did.

This is no fun. This has not been easy. It is necessary. Please pray for me.

    I hear you brother, the pull of the pride and selfishness, the thing is no matter where you are standing, in a third world country or USA, the sin is still the same. I know I struggle each day also. We ask for revival in our lives, we ask for God's fire, his power, we ask that the sin of selfishness and pride be removed. However it comes through our struggle, the wrestling until we can let go and let God be God in our lives.
