Oswald Chambers 7/11

A few tidbits from my reading this morning:



"Whether it be eating or drinking or washing disciples feet, whatever it is, we have to take the initiative of realizing Jesus Christ in it.
<><><>
The aim of the spiritual saint is, 'that I may know Him.'  Do I know Him where I am today?  If not, I am failing Him.  
<><><>
I am here not to realize myself, but to know Jesus."


I forgot how much I loved Mr. Chambers. :)

Have a wonderful day!

He is an awesome man. :) I have his daily devotional, My Utmost for His Highest. To be honest though, I haven't been very faithful in reading it. :/

That excerpt is from My Utmost for His Highest! One of my favorite books ever. I have been very bad about spending time with the Lord lately, and decided I needed to get back on track with a good devotional. Yesterday was my first day. :) It was so refreshing.
