Admission of Weakness
Leslie: This is Seeking Him with Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: I once talked with a group of full-time Christian workers on the topic, “Potential Pitfalls of Ministry.”
Nancy at a conference: It is only by the grace of a faithful God that we can stay faithful and finish well."
Nancy: I was tempted to speak as if I never fell in any of those pitfalls—like I had it all together.
The truth though was at that point in my life, I was perilously close to several of those pitfalls myself.
I had to admit to those Christian workers that I needed this message as much as anyone. As a speaker, I needed to be honest about my own weakness and my need for God’s grace.
Psalm 138:6 says, “Though the LORD is on high, yet He regards the lowly; but the proud He knows from afar.” What opportunity has God given you today to humble yourself and express your need?
With Seeking Him, I'm Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
