June in July

19 07 2011

“If I am devoted to the cause of humanity only,
I will soon be exhausted and come to the place where my love will falter;
but if I love Jesus Christ personally and passionately,
I can serve humanity though men treat me as a door-mat.

The secret of a disciple’s life is devotion to Jesus Christ,
and the characteristic of the life is its unobtrusiveness.

It is like a corn of wheat,
which falls into the ground and dies,
but presently it will spring up
and alter the whole landscape
(John 12:24).”

I meant to read the July 19th entry in Oswald Chambers’ My Utmost for His Highest this morning, but I read the June 19th entry by mistake.

Or maybe it wasn’t by mistake at all.

I needed this bit of June in July. How about you?
