Stripped of Our Personal Empires

"If you are in Christ, God will not allow you to enter his reign with a kingdom-grasping pride. You will be stripped of every haughty look, every personal empire, in order that you might enter as a little child, looking for a Father's inheritance. This will come either through personal repentance, learning to humble yourself, or by God's humbling you through his working it out in your life to knock down your empire so that you can be found in his."

- Russell D. Moore, Tempted and Tried, page 148
