“We are to be nothing, and the less we are and the weaker we are, the better; for the the less we have of self the more room there is for Christ divine grace…He asks nothing of you but that you will be nothing, and that He may be all in all to you.” – Charles Spurgeon

  1. Reminds me of this quote by AW Pink: “The loss of all confidence in ones self, is the first essential in the believer’s growth in grace! …The secret of development of Christian character, is the realization of our own powerlessness, and the consequent turning unto the Lord for help. A consciousness of our powerlessness, should cast us upon Him who has all power.”

    I might finish up a post relating to quote by Pink. And add the Spurgeon quote to it. I’ll link back to your blog when the post is finished.
