 Emptying of Self - Nee

Watchman Nee Daily Devotional for June 28

For hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, that ye should follow his steps. 1 Peter 2.21.

A sister once ruled her house like a queen, then got saved, and became almost like a maid. When she asked her parents for some pocket money and she was not given it as quickly as before, she was willing to lay aside her position and privilege as a daughter. Being now a Christian, you cannot expect your parents to necessarily treat you any more as their child or expect your friends to necessarily deal with you kindly as before. If they refuse to give you your rights, you should put yourself in God’s hand and learn concerning the Lord, one “who, existing in the form of God, . . . emptied himself” (Phil. 2.6,7). He never spoke for himself, therefore we should not speak for ourselves either.
