Encouraging Words with Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman
I believe there are three keys that contribute to the making of great men and women: humility, obedience and integrity.
Developing an attitude of humility is the foundation for greatness! Even YESHUA, who was the Son of GOD, walked in humility, being equal with GOD, He became a servant (Philippians 2:6-7). Then YESHUA walked in obedience by doing whatever ABBA told Him, no matter the cost (even to the point of death on Calvary’s hill. Philippians 2:8)!
Now, integrity is vital if we are going to be a servant GOD can trust. So, if we humble ourselves before GOD, develop a habit of obedience and choose to walk in integrity in every area of life, we will be on our way to showing the world around us what really makes a great man or woman.
Matthew 20:26 Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you let him be your servant.
The world’s way of measuring greatest is how many people serve you, but GOD measures greatness by how many people you serve!
Love & Blessings,
