Managing Monday with Andrew Murray

Posted by on May 1, 2017 in Blog | 1 comment

Andrew Murray (1828-1917), a key figure in the South African revival of 1860, is remembered as an author, pastor and champion of mission. He is sometimes considered one of the forerunners of the Pentecostal movement because of his emphasis on faith healing and the continuation of the spiritual gifts. He also placed special emphasis on prayer. I recently read one of his classics – Humility: The Beauty of Holiness, and thought that a few insights from this and some of his others books were worth a few Managing Monday posts.

  • Humility is nothing but the disappearance of self in the vision that God is all – Andrew Murray
  • The world asks, ‘What does a man own?’ Christ asks, ‘How does he use it?’ – Andrew Murray
  • We must begin to believe that God, in the mystery of prayer, has entrusted us with a force that can move the heavenly world, and can bring its power down to earth – Andrew Murray
  • Water always fills the lowest place first. The lower and emptier a man bows before God, the quicker and fuller the inflow of God’s glory will be – Andrew Murray
  • Entire surrender to Jesus is the secret to perfect rest – Andrew Murray

As always, nice chatting…
