Revelation

It is the Lord!

"Thomas answered and said unto Him, My Lord and my God" John 20:28

"Give Me to drink."  How many of us are set upon Jesus Christ slaking our thirst when we ought to be satisfying Him?  We should be pouring out now, spending to the last limit, not drawing on Him to satisfy us.  "Ye shall be witnessess unto Me" - that means a life of unsullied, uncompromising and unbribed devotion to the Lord Jesus, a satisfaction to Him wherever He places us.

Beware of anything that competes with loyalty to Jesus Christ.  The greatest competitor of devotion to Jesus is service for Him.  It is easier to serve than to be drunk to the dregs.  The one aim of the call of God is the satisfaction of God, not a call to do something for Him.  We are not sent to battle for God, but to be used by God in His battlings.  Are we being more devoted to service than to Jesus Christ?

God has used the above Oswald Chambers' devotion to rock my world this morning.  My quiet time and devotion these many many years have always been about me.  About receiving from Christ, receiving His love, His thoughts, sitting in His presence, enjoying Him.  Now I am not sure if this is a bad thing.  I am not sure of anything at this moment except that this life, my life, my quiet time, my devotion is not about me receiving at all.  It is about me pouring my life, devotion, very self out to Him.  Two sides of the same coin?  Maybe??  Excited to learn more as I walk with this new insight.
