Oswald Chambers Quote

Jesus has prayed that we might be one with Him as He is one with the Father.

From 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24:  “May the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely, and may your spirit and soul and body be kept sound and blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.  The one who calls you is faithful, and He will do this.”

Oswald Chambers (1874-1917) was a Scottish evangelist and Christian teacher.  Following his death from an illness while in Egypt during World War I, his wife took on the task of transcribing the detailed notes she had written from his lectures and sermons.  Gertrude Hobbs Chambers’ efforts resulted in the publication in 1924 of MY UTMOST FOR HIS HIGHEST.  I frequently read from this devotional, and it has greatly deepened my faith and understanding of God’s Word.

What can wash away my sin?  Nothing but the blood of Jesus.  (taken from the hymn, “Nothing But the Blood of Jesus”)

From 1 John 1:7:  “But if we walk in the light as He Himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.”

Robert Lowry (1826-1899) was an American preacher as well as an acclaimed hymn writer.  One of his most revered hymns is “Nothing But the Blood of Jesus.”  It was written in 1876, and it has been sung by many contemporary gospel singers.

Monday Memories: Total Surrender

From Romans 6:4:  “Therefore we have been buried with Him by baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.”

Are we truly walking in Christ?

With a new life, born again

Follow Jesus, He paid our price

 

True sanctification will come

Only from burial of an old life

Known as “white funeral” to some

 

Baptized into Christ, the Holy Son

Baptized into His death

With His death, victory is won

 

Through the confirmed Resurrection

We humbly come to a Holy God

His defining purpose, brings reflection

 

God is leading, always out front

Facing trying times of adversity

Our duty shall be, always to confront

 

Come to almighty and loving God

Sanctify a promise with the Father

God’s will be done, by His rod

 

When Christ forever defeats the Cross

His lasting, living Resurrection offers

“Walking in newness of life,” without loss

 

To Jesus, surrender these sinful ways

Hear Him, accept Him, follow Him

Ask for His forgiveness, without delay

 

Mighty God of angel armies leads

His righteousness marches with us

Filling a hungry soul, His Word feeds

 

Freed from sin, obedient to God

Wages of sin only bring death

Accept Jesus, He overcomes all odds

Nothing harms or destroys us but the wrong use of that liberty of choice which God has entrusted to us.

From Romans 6:22-23:  “But now that you have been freed from sin and enslaved to God, the advantage you get is sanctification.  The end is eternal life.  For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

By sanctification the Son of God is formed in me, then I have to transform my natural life into a spiritual life by obedience to Him.

From 2 Corinthians 7:1:  “Since we have these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from every defilement of body and of spirit, making holiness perfect in the fear of God.”

Charles Spurgeon Quote

The instrument of our sanctification is the Word of God.  The Spirit of God brings to our minds the precepts and doctrines of truth, and applies them with power.  The truth is our sanctifier.  If we do not hear or read it, we will not grow in sanctification.

Apostle Paul writes in Romans 1:16:  “For I am not ashamed of the gospel; it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who has faith, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
