The Evidence

Again from John Woodward and excerpts taken from an Exchanged Life Conference.

"Evidences of Brokenness

1. All rights surrendered

2. Willing to be rejected

3. Transparent - willing to share weakness

4. Vulnerable - willing to share failures

5. A sense of total inadequacy in self strength - 2 Cor 3:5

6. A sense of adequacy in Christ through His strength - Phil. 4:13, 2
Cor. 3:6

7. Trusting God whatever - resting even with external turmoil

8. Obedience out of a love motive because I want to, not because I have

9. Recognizing the power in weakness

10. Willing to be weak

11. Willing to fail

12. A readiness to let others receive credit

13. Genuine humility

10. Placing value upon those who have little or no value to yourself

15. A readiness to affirm (build-up) others

16. Teachable

17. Willing to be out of control

18. Willing to be misunderstood

As true believers in Christ we have the assurance that we are united with Him--He lives in us by His Spirit. Yet if we want the full blessing of Christ living in and through us, then we need to say "not I" (Gal 2:20)."
