The Only Relationship That Matters

Oswald Chambers 90x115by Oswald Chambers

There is only one relationship that matters, and that is your personal relationship to a personal Redeemer and Lord. Let everything else go, but maintain that at all cost, and God will fulfill His purpose through your life. (This includes meeting the needs of your heart.) One individual life may be of priceless value to God’s purposes, and yours may be that life.

Oswald Chambers – 1874-1917, prominent early twentieth century Scottish Protestant Christian minister and teacher, best known as the author of the widely-read devotional My Utmost for His Highest.

Nothing Too Hard for God! Part 2

James Smith 90x115by James Smith 1864

No work of GRACE is too hard for the Lord. He can break the hardest heart. Though it is petrified like the heart of Manasseh, or like the heart of Saul of Tarsus — he can break, soften, and transform it by a word! He can bow the stubbornest will; however determined and imperious it may be — it must yield at his command. Therefore it is written, "Your people shall be willing in the day of your power."

He can enlighten the darkest intellect. Where man has failed to instruct or impress another — God has easily and wondrously shone upon the mind. He can warm the coldest professor. Though he seems to have been born in an icehouse, and frozen into an iceberg — he can melt, warm, and cause the bosom to glow with soft, winning, and tender love!

He can quicken the most lethargic spirit. Where there appeared to be no energy, no power, no zeal for God — he has inspired the individual with extraordinary activity in his cause, and concern for his glory.
