Good Start-Good Lesson

The last three weeks with Bro. Young and his family have been a huge blessing. Our first week we enjoyed a revival week at Victory Baptist Church.

The next week we were in Somerville Alabama with Somerville Baptist Church. God did a great work among both the adults and children. A couple of children made profession of salvation and many more found scriptural basis for assurance. On one night a dozen or more young children decided to surrender their lives to God so He could use them.

This last week Bro. Dave has been preaching the opening meetings at PCC. The students have enjoyed the preaching and are making decisions for God. It was good to see the Lord working in hearts. 

God has been teaching me a lot about humility. I am learning that I need God’s grace more than I ever realized. 1 Peter 5:8 says that we should be clothed with humility. In order to do this I must be completely empty of self and be willing to lower myself as Jesus did. He is the best example of humility. 

This submission is best described in Philippians 2. He made Himself of no reputation. He took the form of a servant, and obeyed God to the point of death. The very Creator of the universe brought Himself down to our level to serve and be beat. He didn’t come only to be praised but to die and rise again. Because of this humility God has exalted Him. 

I’m not looking to be exalted. I desperately need God’s grace. I desire to know God. To love Jesus the way He deserves. This can only happen if Micah Self disappears.
