Emptying and Offering

This is what Yeshua did. And we are called to imitate Him. So what does this mean for us?

Surely it means that we also are to empty and offer. But what does this actually mean, practically?

We have to put aside all our own ideas, even our ideas about what our ministry call is, put aside our goals and ambitions, give up everything we are and have. This is what emptying is. And this is what Yeshua did. He was and is God, but He didn’t cling to that. He became a servant, a bondslave.

Are we prepared to do this, to become nothing as it were? Or do we cling to things believing we are entitled to them for some reason. Really we are entitled to nothing, We are only saved because of His Amazing Grace and Love.

Surely we can put aside what we think we are, or think we can offer, and just offer what He wants us to?

Yeshua did not say, ‘Hey, I am God the Son’. No He said ‘i am Your son, i will become Your bondslave and i will do what You ask me to do. No matter what the cost.’ 

Offering to Adonai  is to be on His terms not ours.
