Empty yourself

“Not only a humility before God, but a humility before people makes you a potential to be filled with the Spirit. You have to be emptied of yourself. And so we would say that before anybody would ever see the power of God working in his life, he would have to be emptied of himself.

And when you start to talk about humility, that is a difficult thing to define. But, when you think you are finally humble, you can be sure you’re not. And when you think you’re proud and you wrestle with your pride, and you weep over your pride, you’re closer to being humble than you ever will be any other way.”
