“Better have God and no other friend then all the patrons on the earth and no God.” —Charles Spurgeon

Thought-provoking questions: “Dear Christian, are you still on fire for Jesus? Are you in love with Him as passionately as when you first got saved? Or have you lost interest in His concerns, forsaking all ministry? Do you have too much else going on in your life? If so, the Lord says to you, ‘I have something against you—you have left your first love!’” —David Wilkerson

Thursdays With Oswald—Right Thinking

This is a weekly series with things I’m reading and pondering from Oswald Chambers. You can read the original seed thought here, or type “Thursdays With Oswald” in the search box to read more entries.

Right Thinking

     We have to be so faithful to God that through us may come the awakening of those who have not yet realized that they are redeemed. 

     We must distinguish between the revelation of Redemption and the experience of regeneration. We don’t experience life; we are alive. We don’t experience Redemption; we experience regeneration, that is, we experience the life of God coming into our human nature, and immediately the life of God comes in it produces a surface of consciousness, but Redemption means a great deal more than a man is conscious of. 

From Conformed To His Image

These comments come from a class Oswald Chambers taught called “Christian Thinking.” His contention was that (1) Christians are the living, breathing testimony of what God does for man; (2) Christians need to think right in order to live right; (3) the way Christians live will either attract or repel others to Jesus Christ.

This right thinking is formed in Christians as the Holy Spirit reveals Christ to us through the Word. Often times we will find that we have been thinking all wrong about something, and we need to “be so faithful to God” that we are willing to give up these wrong lines of thinking.

Are you? Am I? Are we willing to admit, “I was wrong on this point” in order that others may see Christ in us and accept Him as their Savior? I sure hope so!
