This is a periodic 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.
(Normally I share a longer passage from Oswald Chambers, but his book Disciples Indeed contains so many short, power-packed statements, that I wanted to share a few of those with you.)
- “If we understood what happens when we use the Word of God, we would use it oftener.”
- “Everything the devil does, God over-reaches to serve His own purpose.”
- “There is nothing so still and gentle as the checks of the Holy Spirit if they are yielded to, emancipation is the result; but let them be trifled with, and there will come a hardening of the life away from God.”
- “My conscience makes me know what I ought to do, but it does not empower me to do it.”
- “In the moral realm if you don’t do things quickly you will never do them.”
- “Second thoughts on moral matters are always the deflections.”
- “The greatest test of Christianity is the wear and tear of daily life, it is like the shining of silver, the more it is rubbed the brighter it grows.”
- “We have to do more than we are built to do naturally; we have to do all the Almighty builds us to do.”
- “When I began to be satisfied with where I am spiritually, instantly I begin to degenerate.”
