Humility: The Journey Toward Holiness

This is what I am about to start reading.
This book was originally written sometime in the last half of the 1800s by Andrew Murray.
This is the biography that the book gave:
Andrew Murray was born in South Africa in 1828. After receiving his education in Scotland and Holland, he returned to South Africa and spent many years as both pastor and missionary. He was a staunch advocate of biblical Christianity. He is best known for his many devotional books, including The Blood of Christ and Waiting on God.
Murray passed on in 1917.
This is what the publisher says about Humility:
When Jesus “made himself nothing … taking the nature of a servant,” He modeled for all believers true humility. Andrew Murray calls this “our true nobility” and “the distinguishing feature of discipleship.” With insightful, penetrating clarity, Murray calls all Christians to turn from pride, empty themselves, and study the character of Christ to be filled with His grace.
Boy am I in trouble.
I love books like these written by men like Watchmen Nee or C.S. Lewis or Andrew Murray… they may have been written 50 or more years ago but they are still relevant today.
I’ll let you know how it goes…
Good night and blessings,
Jen
