Devotions for 10-29 from Gary Moon’s book Apprenticeship with Jesus
Joshua Kang said, “Abraham had to empty his heart….And when he did so he made room for God’s abundant blessing. He became a friend of God through surrender.”
The ways of the kingdom of God are often at odds with those of the world. If we are going to be like Jesus, we’re often going to look different in an oddly loving, peaceful, joyful way.
Jesus was in the business of getting people to be odd. He didn’t want his followers to fit into the world but to be at home in the kingdom.
To the extent that we become empty of self, He is revealed through us.
May we ask Him what we may need to put on the altar so that we can be emptied in order to be filled with Him.
