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.

Those are amazing words. Thanks for sharing with them, Bessie... it was just what I needed today. God bless you!
