Thursdays With Oswald—Where Are Your Feet?

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.

Where Are Your Feet?

“Where did Jesus placed His feet? He placed them by the sick and the sorrowful, by the dead, by the bad, by the twisted and by the good. He placed His feet exactly where we have to place ours…, in the ordinary rough and tumble of human life as it is. ‘I will make the place of My feet glorious [Isaiah 60:13].’” 

From Run Today’s Race

Run Today’s Race contains short statements from Oswald Chambers intended to stimulate Christians to ponder things like:

  • All of Isaiah 60 is about God’s glory being revealed on earth through Jesus Christ. Am I letting Christ’s glory shine through my life?
  • Do I only look for “super-spiritual” moments, or am I aware that God can make wherever I place my feet a glorious place?
  • Am I willing to go wherever God needs me to go?

    Somehow this reminds me of that expression “voting with your feet”: are we running to God or running away from God?

    Here are a few lines from Gerard Manley Hopkins’ “The Wreck of the Deutschland”:

    “Hither then, last or first,
    To hero of Calvary, Christ,’s feet—
    Never ask if meaning it, wanting it, warned of it—men go.”

    “‘s feet” or “His feet”: Jesus walked all over Israel (using His feet) during his ministry here on earth. Then one day they nailed Him to the cross: he couldn’t use his hands or his feet to minister to people . . . . .but his precious blood was shed so that, for generations to come, many people would be cleansed of their sins and have access to our heavenly Father. Now that we have Christ within us, God calls us to go and reach the world for Christ: “men go.”
