More Bits Of Oswald Chambers

Antique Compass--PhotobucketOswald Chambers, best known for his book, “My Utmost For His Highest,” left a spiritual legacy that continues to impact the Church today. Below are a few more examples of that legacy.

“The only right a Christian has is the right to give up his rights.”

“Faith never knows where it is being led, but it loves and knows the One who is leading.”

“Faith is deliberate confidence in the character of God whose ways you may not understand at the time.”

“Leave the broken, irreversible past in God’s hands, and step out into the invincible future with Him.”

“Faith for my deliverance is not faith in God. Faith means, whether I am visibly delivered or not, I will stick to my belief that God is love.”

“God has one destined end for mankind – holiness! His one aim is the production of saints. God is not an eternal blessing-machine for men. He did not come to save men out of pity. He came to save men because He had created them to be holy.”

“Obedience to the call of Christ nearly always costs everything to two people – the one who is called, and the one who loves that one.”

“All of God’s people are ordinary people who have been made extraordinary by the purpose He has given them.”

“Wait on God and He will work, but don’t wait in spiritual sulks because you cannot see an inch in front of you! Are we detached enough from our spiritual hysterics to wait on God? To wait is not to sit with folded hands, but to learn to do what we are told.”

“We look upon prayer as a means of getting things for ourselves; The Bible idea of prayer is that we may get to know God Himself.”

“Prayer does not equip us for greater works – prayer is the greater work.”

“All heaven is interested in the cross of Christ, all hell terribly afraid of it, while men are the only beings who more or less ignore its meaning.”
