Christ emptied Himself. He eradicated all selfishness, all sinful desires, until only love was left.
And we see that in His life. How He gave and gave beyond duty; how He always had time to touch one small life; how He sought nothing for Himself.
He was love. Only love.
I want this in my life. I want to be empty.
Empty of selfishness, of self-glory, of all that separates from His face.
Empty until Christ can fill me with His love; fill me with Himself.
God uses broken vessels. He uses empty vessels.
For only in brokenness is healing.
Only in emptiness can we be truly filled.
Empty of self. Full of Him.
