I Know How To Be Abased

Suppose God wants to teach you to say, "I know how to be abased." - Are you ready to be offered up like that? Are you ready to be not so much as a drop in the bucket - to be so hopelessly insignificant that you are never thought of again in connection with the life you served?  Are you willing to spend and be spent, not seeking to be ministered unto, but to minister?  Some saints cannot do menial work and remain saints because it is beneath their dignity.
