Famous Oswald Chambers Quotes

The dearest friend on earth is a mere shadow compared to Jesus Christ. – Oswald Chambers

The whole point of getting things done is knowing what to leave undone. – Oswald Chambers

If you are going to be used by God, He will take you through a number of experiences that are not meant for you personally at all. They are designed to make you useful in His hands, and to enable you to understand what takes place in the lives of others. – Oswald Chambers

The remarkable thing about God is that when you fear God, you fear nothing else, whereas if you do not fear God, you fear everything else. – Oswald Chambers

Complete weakness and dependence will always be the occasion for the Spirit of God to manifest His power. – Oswald Chambers

God gives us the vision, then he takes us down to the valley to batter us into the shape of the vision, and it is in the valley that so many of us faint and give way. Every vision will be made real if we will have patience. – Oswald Chambers

I have to get to the point of the absolute and unquestionable relationship that takes everything exactly as it comes from Him. God never guides us at some time in the future, but always here and now. Realize that the Lord is here now, and the freedom you receive is immediate. – Oswald Chambers

Our Lord never referred to unanswered prayer. He taught that prayers are always answered: “Everyone who asks receives”. And He implied that prayers are answered rightly because of the heavenly Father’s wisdom: “Your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him”. – Oswald Chambers

You will never cease to be the most amazed person on earth at what God has done for you on the inside. – Oswald Chambers

As soon as we abandon ourselves to God and do the task He has placed closest to us, He begins to fill our lives with surprises. – Oswald Chambers

Never believe that the so-called random events of life are anything less than God’s appointed order. Be ready to discover His divine designs anywhere and everywhere. – Oswald Chambers

The center of salvation is the Cross of Jesus, and the reason it is so easy to obtain salvation is because it cost God so much. – Oswald Chambers

If my ruling disposition is self-interest, I perceive that everything that happens to me is always for or against my self-interest; if, on the other hand, my ruling disposition is obedience to God, I perceive Him to be at work for my perfecting in everything that happens to me. – Oswald Chambers

The strain of life is what builds our strength. If there is no strain, there will be no strength. – Oswald Chambers

We all know people who have been made much meaner and more irritable and more intolerable to live with by suffering: it is not right to say that all suffering perfects. It only perfects one type of person …… the one who accepts the call of God in Christ Jesus. – Oswald Chambers

The secret of the missionary is…I am His, and He is carrying out His work through me. – Oswald Chambers

Eternal life is not a gift from God; eternal life is the gift of God. The energy and the power which was so very evident in Jesus will be exhibited in us by an act of the absolute sovereign grace of God, once we have made that complete and effective decision about sin. We have to keep letting go, and slowly, but surely, the great full life of God will invade us, penetrating every part. – Oswald Chambers

Get into the habit of saying, ”Speak, Lord,” and life will become a romance. – Oswald Chambers

Some prayers are followed by silence (from God) because they are wrong, others because they are bigger than one can understand. It will be a wonderful moment for some of us when we stand before God and find that the prayers we clamored for in early days and imagined were never answered, have been answered in the most amazing way, and that God’s silence has been the sign of the answer. – Oswald Chambers

If we believe in Jesus, it is not what we gain but what He pours through us that really counts. God’s purpose is not simply to make us beautiful, plump grapes, but to make us grapes so that He may squeeze the sweetness out of us. – Oswald Chambers

God brings you to places, among people, and into certain conditions to accomplish a definite purpose through the intercession of the Spirit in you. Your part in intercessory prayer is not to agonize over how to intercede, but to use the everyday circumstances and people God puts around you by His providence to bring them before His throne, and to allow the Spirit in you the opportunity to intercede for them. In this way God is going to touch the whole world with His saints. – Oswald Chambers

It is easy to say we believe in God as long as we remain in the little world we choose to live in; but get out into the great world of facts, the noisy world where people are absolutely indifferent to you, where your message is nothing more than a crazy tale belonging to a bygone age, can you believe God there? – Oswald Chambers

Faith never knows where it is being led, but it loves and knows the One who is leading. – Oswald Chambers

Human nature, if healthy, demands excitement; and if it does not obtain its thrilling excitement in the right way, it will seek it in the wrong. God never makes bloodless stoics; He makes no passionless saints. – Oswald Chambers

We are uncertain of the next step, but we are certain of God. Immediately we abandon to God, and do the duty that lies nearest, and He packs our life with surprises all the time…. Leave the whole thing to Him, it is gloriously uncertain how He will come in, but He will come. – Oswald Chambers

We are so busy telling God where we would like to go. We wait with the idea of some great opportunity, something sensational, and when it comes we are quick to cry, ‘Here am I.’ Readiness for God means that we are ready to do the tiniest little thing or the great big thing, it makes no difference. – Oswald Chambers

There is actually only one thing you can dedicate to God, and that is your right to yourself. If you will give God your right to yourself, He will make a holy experiment out of you – and His experiments always succeed. – Oswald Chambers

God places His saints where they will bring the most glory to Him, and we are totally incapable of judging where that may be. – Oswald Chambers

Spiritual maturity is not reached by the passing of the years, but by obedience to the will of God. – Oswald Chambers

If a crisis has come to you on any front, surrender your will to Jesus absolutely and irrevocably. – Oswald Chambers

God never gives us discernment in order that we may criticize, but that we may intercede. – Oswald Chambers

God saved us to make us holy, not happy. Some experiences may not contribute to our happiness, but all can be made to contribute to our holiness. Vance Havner The destined end of man is not happiness, nor health, but holiness. God’s one aim is the production of saints. – Oswald Chambers

If you yourself do not cut the lines that tie you to the dock, God will have to use a storm to sever them and to send you out to sea. You have to get out past the harbor into the great dephts of God, and begin to know things for yourself….beg in to have spiritual discernment. Beware of paying attention or going back to what you once were, when God wants you to be something that you have never been. – Oswald Chambers

Prayer is not getting things from God. That is a most initial stage; prayer is getting into perfect communion with God: I tell Him what I know He knows in order that I may get to know it as He does. – Oswald Chambers

Our yesterdays present irreparable things to us; it is true that we have lost opportunities which will never return, but God can transform this destructive anxiety into a constructive thoughtfulness for the future. Let the past sleep, but let it sleep on the bosom of Christ. Leave the Irreparable Past in His hands, and step out into the Irresistible Future with Him. – Oswald Chambers

Beware of any work for God that causes or allows you to avoid concentrating on Him. – Oswald Chambers

We are not meant to be seen as God’s perfect, bright-shining examples, but to be seen as the everyday essence of ordinary life exhibiting the miracle of His grace. – Oswald Chambers

God rarely allows a person to see how great a blessing he is to others. – Oswald Chambers

Faith for my deliverance is not faith in God. Faith means, whether I am visibly delivered or not, I will stick to my belief that God is love. – Oswald Chambers

God is the Great Engineer, creating circumstances to bring about moments in our lives of divine importance, leading us to divine appointments – Oswald Chambers

When a man’s heart is right with God the mysterious utterances of the Bible are spirit and life to him. Spiritual truth is discernible only to a pure heart, not to a keen intellect. It is not a question of profundity of intellect, but of purity of heart. – Oswald Chambers

Keep your life in its constant contact with God that his surprising power may break out on the right hand and on the left. Always be in a state of expectancy, and see that you leave room for God to come in as he likes. – Oswald Chambers

Have you been asking God what He is going to do? He will never tell you. God does not tell you what He is going to do; He reveals to you Who He is. – Oswald Chambers

We are not made for the mountains, for sunrises, or for the other beautiful attractions in life – those are simply intended to be moments of inspiration. We are made for the valley and the ordinary things of life and that is where we have to prove our stamina and strength. – Oswald Chambers

You can never argue anyone into the Kingdom of Heaven, you cannot argue anyone anywhere. The only result of arguing is to prove to your own mind that you are right and the other fellow wrong. You cannot argue for truth; but immediately Incarnate Truth is presented, a want awakens in the soul which only God can meet. – Oswald Chambers

There is a vast difference between devotion to a person and devotion to principles or to a cause. Our Lord never proclaimed a cause- He proclaimed personal devotion to Himself. To be a disciple is to be a devoted bondservant motivated by love for the Lord Jesus. – Oswald Chambers

Sanctification is not my idea of what I want God to do for me; sanctification is God’s idea of what He wants to do for me. – Oswald Chambers

It is not true to say that God wants to teach us something in our trials. Through every cloud He brings our way, He wants us to unlearn something. – Oswald Chambers

The test of a man’s religious life and character is not what he does in the exceptional moments of life, but what he does in the ordinary times, when there is nothing tremendous or exciting on. The worth of a man is revealed in his attitude to ordinary things when he is not before the footlights. – Oswald Chambers

Faith that is sure of itself is not faith; faith that is sure of God is the only faith there is. – Oswald Chambers

We are not responsible for the circumstances we are in, but we are responsible for the way we allow those circumstances to affect us; we can either allow them to get on top of us or we can allow them to transform us into what God wants us to be. – Oswald Chambers

The great thing about faith in God is that it keeps a man undisturbed in the midst of disturbance. – Oswald Chambers

God never forces a person’s will into surrender, and He never begs. He patiently waits until that person willingly yields to Him. True surrender is a matter of being ‘united together [with Jesus] in the likeness of His death’ (Romans 6:5) until nothing ever appeals to you that did not appeal to Him. And after you surrender–then what? Your entire life should be characterized by an eagerness to maintain unbroken fellowship and oneness with God. – Oswald Chambers

We pray when there’s nothing else we can do; Jesus wants us to pray before we do anything at all. – Oswald Chambers

God is not concerned about our plans; He doesn’t ask, “Do you want to go through this loss of a loved one, this difficulty, or this defeat?” No, He allows these things for His own purpose. The things we are going through are either making us sweeter, better, and nobler men and women, or they are making us more critical and fault-finding, and more insistent on our own way. The things that happen either make us evil, or they make us more saintly, depending entirely on our relationship with God and its level of intimacy. – Oswald Chambers

The root of all sin is the suspicion that God is not good. – Oswald Chambers

For understanding in spiritual matters, the golden rule is not intellect but obedience. – Oswald Chambers

The greatest test of Christianity is the wear and tear of daily life; it is like the shining of silver: the more it is rubbed the brighter it grows. – Oswald Chambers

Christianity is not devotion to work, or to a cause, or a doctrine, but devotion to a Person, the Lord Jesus Christ. – Oswald Chambers

When God gets us alone through suffering, heartbreak, temptation, disappointment, sickness, or by thwarted friendship – when He gets us absolutely alone, and we are totally speechless, unable to ask even one question, then He begins to teach us. – Oswald Chambers

The heart of salvation is the Cross of Christ. The reason salvation is so easy to obtain is that it cost God so much. The Cross was the place where God and sinful man merged with a tremendous collision and where the way to life was opened. But all the cost and pain of the collision was absorbed by the heart of God. – Oswald Chambers

You must learn to wrestle against the things that hinder your communication with God. – Oswald Chambers

We have to pray with our eyes on God, not on the difficulties. – Oswald Chambers

The moment we recognize our complete weakness and our dependence upon Him will be the very moment that the Spirit of God will exhibit His power. – Oswald Chambers

Solitude with God repairs the damage done by the fret and noise and clamour of the world. – Oswald Chambers

Self pity is of the devil, and if I wallow in it, I cannot be used by God for his purpose in the world. – Oswald Chambers

All our fret and worry is caused by calculating without God. – Oswald Chambers

At times God puts us through the discipline of darkness to teach us to heed Him. Song birds are taught to sing in the dark, and we are put into the shadow of God’s hand until we learn to hear Him…Watch where God puts you into darkness, and when you are there keep your mouth shut. Are you in the dark just now in your circumstances, or in your life with God? Then remain quiet…When you are in the dark, listen, and God will give you a very precious message for someone else when you get into the light. – Oswald Chambers

We must never put our dreams of success as God’s purpose for us; His purpose may be exactly the opposite. His purpose is that I depend on HIM and in HIS power NOW. His end is the process. It is the process, not the end, which is glorifying to God….His purpose is for this minute, not for something in the future. We have nothing to do with the ‘afterwards’ of obedience. If we have a further end in view, we do not pay sufficient attention to the immediate present; if we realize that obedience is the end, then each moment as it comes is precious. – Oswald Chambers

The expression of Christian character is not good doing, but God-likeness. If the Spirit of God has transformed you within, you will exhibit Divine characteristics in your life, not good human characteristics . God’s life in us expresses itself as God’s life, not as human life trying to be godly. – Oswald Chambers

We look upon the enemy of our souls as a conquered foe, so he is, but only to God, not to us. – Oswald Chambers

Faith is deliberate confidence in the character of God whose ways you may not understand at the time. – Oswald Chambers

It is the unseen and the spiritual in people that determines the outward and the actual. – Oswald Chambers

If in preaching the gospel you substitute your knowledge of the way of salvation for confidence in the power of the gospel, you hinder people from getting to reality. – Oswald Chambers

When a man is at his wits’ end it is not a cowardly thing to pray, it is the only way he can get in touch with Reality. – Oswald Chambers

Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested. – Oswald Chambers

A good book, in the language of the book-sellers, is a salable one; in that of the curious, a scarce one; in that of men of sense, a useful and instructive one. – Oswald Chambers

When it is a question of God’s almighty Spirit, never say, ‘I can’t.’ – Oswald Chambers

I have learnt that I am me, that I can do the things that, as one might put it, me can do, but I cannot do the things that me would like to do. – Oswald Chambers

Holiness, not happiness, is the chief end of man. – Oswald Chambers

Certain things can only be dealt with by ignoring them; if you face them you increase their power. It is absurd to say, Pray about them; when once a thing is seen to be wrong, don’t pray about it, it fixes the mind on it; never for a second brood on it, destroy it by neglect. – Oswald Chambers

Never become attached to anything that continues to hurt God. For you to be free of it, God must be allowed to hurt whatever it may be. – Oswald Chambers

The great enemy of the life of faith in God is not sin, but the good which is not good enough. The good is always the enemy of the best. – Oswald Chambers

When obedience is in the ascendant, He will tax the remotest star and the last grain of sand to assist you with all His Almighty power. – Oswald Chambers

The people who influence us most are not those who buttonhole us and talk to us, but those who live their lives like the stars in heaven and the lilies in the field, perfectly simply and unaffectedly. Those are the lives that mould – Oswald Chambers

Our ordinary abilities will never worship God unless they are transformed by the indwelling Son of God. – Oswald Chambers

Our circumstances are the means God uses to exhibit just how wonderfully perfect and extraordinarily pure His Son is. – Oswald Chambers

Beware of the inclination to dictate to God what consequences you would allow as a condition of your obedience to Him. – Oswald Chambers

Remember that we have to ask things of God that are in keeping with the God whom Jesus Christ revealed. – Oswald Chambers

We are here for God’s designs, not for our own – Oswald Chambers

It’s easier to serve God without a vision, easier to work for God without a call, because then you are not bothered by what God requires; common sense is your guide, veneered over with Christian sentiment. But once you receive a commission from Jesus Christ the memory of what God wants will always come like a goad, and you will no longer be able to work for Him on the common sense basis. – Oswald Chambers

Many of us refuse to grow where we are put; consequently, we take root nowhere. – Oswald Chambers

It is not a lack of spiritual experience that leads to failure, but a lack of working to keep our eyes focused and on the right goal. At least once a week examine yourself before God to see if your life is measuring up to the standard He has for you. Paul was like a musician who gives no thought to audience approval, if he can only catch a look of approval from his Conductor. – Oswald Chambers

The love of God is not created- it is His nature. – Oswald Chambers

The central point of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ is a personal relationship with Him, not public usefulness to others. – Oswald Chambers

Faith, as the Bible teaches it, is faith in God coming against everything that contradicts Him- a faith that says, “I will remain true to God’s character whatever He may do.” The highest and the greatest expression of faith in the whole Bible is- “Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him” (Job 13:15). – Oswald Chambers

In Christian work our initiative and motivation are too often simply the result of realizing that there is work to be done and that we must do it. Yet that is never the attitude of a spiritually vigorous saint. His aim is to achieve the realization of Jesus Christ in every set of circumstances. – Oswald Chambers

The true expression of Christian character is not in good-doing but in God-likeness. – Oswald Chambers

If I am going to know who Jesus is, I must obey Him. The majority of us don’t know Jesus because we have not the remotest intention of obeying Him. – Oswald Chambers

Faith must be tested, because it can be turned into a personal possession only through conflict. – Oswald Chambers

It is a great thing to see physical courage, and greater still to see moral courage, but the greatest to see of all is spiritual courage; oh, to see a person who will stand true to the integrity of Jesus Christ no matter what he or she goes through! – Oswald Chambers

We must learn to live in the ordinary ‘gray’ day according to what we saw on the mountain. – Oswald Chambers

The Bible talks plentifully about joy, but it nowhere talks about a ‘happy Christian.’ Happiness depends on what happens; joy does not. Remember, Jesus Christ had joy, and He prayed ‘that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.’ – Oswald Chambers

When a man says he must develop a holy life alone with God, he is of no more use to his fellow men: he puts himself on a pedestal, away from the common run of men………If we are abandoned to Jesus, we have no ends of our own to serve. – Oswald Chambers

God gets me into a relationship with Himself whereby I understand His call, then I do things out of sheer love for Him on my own account. To serve God is the deliberate love-gift of a nature that has heard the call of God. – Oswald Chambers

There is a call to spiritual perseverance. A call not to hang on and do nothing, but to work deliberately, knowing with certainty that God will never be defeated. – Oswald Chambers

Sanctification means more than being freed from sin. It means the deliberate commitment of myself to the God of my salvation, and being willing to pay whatever it may cost. – Oswald Chambers

Take yourself by the scruff of the neck and shake off your incarnate laziness. – Oswald Chambers

The vision that God gives is not some unattainable castle in the sky, but a vision of what God wants you to be down here. – Oswald Chambers

We must build our faith not on fading lights but on the Light that never fails. – Oswald Chambers

The call of God is not a reflection of my nature; my personal desires and temperament are of no consideration. As long as I dwell on my own qualities and traits and think about what I am suited for, I will never hear the call of God. – Oswald Chambers

If we simply preach the effects of redemption in the human life instead of the revealed, divine truth regarding Jesus Himself, the result is not new birth in those who listen. The result is {only} a refined religious lifestyle . . . we must make sure that we are living in such harmony with God that as we proclaim His truth He can create in others those things which He alone can do. – Oswald Chambers

When we see Him, we will wonder that we ever could have disobeyed Him. – Oswald Chambers

No matter who or what we are, God restores us to right standing with Himself only by means of the death of Jesus Christ. – Oswald Chambers

God works this unspeakable mystery of entire sanctification in your life and mine. People try to seek the experience of entire sanctification in ways other than God’s way; but the wonderful Spirit of God will remove confusion and enable us to see that the only means to obtain the experience of entire sanctification by faith is the grace of God. – Oswald Chambers

In a conflict of loyalty, obey Jesus at all costs. – Oswald Chambers

The thing that awakens the deepest fountain of gratitude in a human being is that God has forgiven his sin. – Oswald Chambers

The one true mark of a saint of God is the inner creativity that flows from being totally surrendered to Jesus Christ. – Oswald Chambers

When the Spirit fills us, we are transformed, and by beholding God we become mirrors. You can always tell when someone has been beholding the glory of the Lord, because your inner spirit senses that he mirrors the Lord’s own character. Beware of anything that would spot or tarnish that mirror in you. It is almost always something good that will stain it- something good, but not what is best. – Oswald Chambers

We give credit to human wisdom when we should give credit to the divine guidance of God being exhibited through childlike people who were “foolish” enough to trust God’s wisdom and His supernatural equipment. – Oswald Chambers

Spiritual lust causes me to demand an answer from God, instead of seeking God Himself who gives the answer. – Oswald Chambers

Death is God’s delightful way of giving us life. – Oswald Chambers

Beware of bartering the Word of God for a more suitable conception of your own. – Oswald Chambers

Be relentless and hard on yourself if you are in the habit of talking about the experiences you have had. Faith based on experience is not faith; faith based on God’s revealed truth is the only faith there is. – Oswald Chambers

There have been prophets and students who handle the Bible like a child’s box of bricks; they explain to us the design and structure and purpose; but as time goes on things do not work out in their way at all. They have mistaken the scaffolding for the structure, while all the time God is working out His purpose with a great and undeterred patience. – Oswald Chambers

We look for visions of heaven and we never dream that all the time God is in the commonplace things and people around us. – Oswald Chambers

In the spiritual domain, criticism is love turned sour… If criticism becomes a habit, it will destroy the moral energy of the life and paralyze the spiritual force… Whenever you are in a critical temper, it is impossible to enter into communion with God. Criticism makes you hard and vindictive and cruel, and leaves you with the flattering unction that you are a superior person. It is impossible to develop the characteristics of a saint and maintain a critical attitude. – Oswald Chambers

The scrutiny we give other people should be for ourselves. – Oswald Chambers

Make the determination to abide in Jesus wherever you are now or wherever you may be placed in the future. – Oswald Chambers

Many people have turned back because they are afraid to look at things from God’s perspective. The greatest spiritual crisis comes when a person has to move a little farther on in his faith than the beliefs he has already accepted. – Oswald Chambers

Obey Him with glad reckless joy. – Oswald Chambers

One life totally devoted to God is of more value to Him than one hundred lives which have been simply awakened by His Spirit. – Oswald Chambers

If we are obsessed by God, nothing else can get into our lives – not concerns, nor tribulation, not worries. – Oswald Chambers

The spirit of God has the habit of taking the words of Jesus out of their scriptural setting and putting them into the setting of our personal lives. – Oswald Chambers

God will turn the might have been into a wonderful culture for the future. – Oswald Chambers

When God gives us a vision, we must transact business with Him at that point, no matter what the cost. – Oswald Chambers

The disciple is rich not in possessions, but in personal identity. – Oswald Chambers

Service is the overflow which pours from a life filled with love and devotion. But strictly speaking, there is no call to that. Service is what I bring to the relationship and is the reflection of my identification with the nature of God. – Oswald Chambers

It is not repentance that saves me; repentance is the sign that I realize what God has done in Christ Jesus. – Oswald Chambers

Trust completely in God, and when He brings you to a new opportunity of adventure, offering it to you, see that you take it. – Oswald Chambers

The honour of Jesus Christ is at stake in your bodily life. Are you remaining loyal to the Son of God in the things which beset His life in you? Do you continue to go with Jesus? The way lies through Gethsemane, through the city gate, outside the camp; the way lies alone, and the way lies until there is no trace of a footstep left, only the voice, ‘Follow Me.’ – Oswald Chambers

We can all see God in exceptional things, but it requires the culture of spiritual discipline to see God in every detail. – Oswald Chambers

Never be hurried out of the relationship of abiding in Him. – Oswald Chambers

What the world needs is not ‘a little bit of love’, but a surgical operation. – Oswald Chambers

Faith by its very nature must be tried, and the real trial of faith is not that we find it difficult to trust God, but that God’s character has to be cleared in our own minds. Faith in its actual working out has to go through spells of unsyllabled isolation… ‘Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him.’ – this is the most sublime utterance of faith in the whole of the Bible. – Oswald Chambers

The Cross is the central event in time and eternity, and the answer to all the problems of both. – Oswald Chambers

One of the most difficult questions to answer in Christian work is, ‘What do you expect to do?’ You don’t know what you are going to do. The only thing you know is that God knows what He is doing…….Hav e you been asking what God is going to do? He will never tell you. God does not tell you what He is going to do. He reveals to you who he is. – Oswald Chambers

The greatest word of Jesus to His disciples is abandon – Oswald Chambers

My worth to God publicly is measured by what I really am in my private life. – Oswald Chambers

Let God fling you out (as seed), and do not go until He does. If you select your own spot, you will prove an empty pod. If God sows you, you will bring forth fruit. – Oswald Chambers

But the miracle of the redemptive reality of God is that the worst and the vilest offender can never exhaust the depths of His love. – Oswald Chambers

It must be God first, God second, and God third – Oswald Chambers

Intercession is about putting ourselves in other’s shoes or having sympathy with others. But intercessions are about having the mind of God and see things through His perspective – Oswald Chambers

When we discern that people are not going on spiritually and allow the discernment to turn to criticism, we block our way to God. God never gives us discernment in order that we may criticize, but that we may intercede – Oswald Chambers

Never be diplomatic and careful about the treasure God gives. This is poverty triumphant. – Oswald Chambers

Every man carries his kingdom within, and no one knows what is taking place in another’s kingdom. ‘No one understands me!’ Of course they don’t, each one of us is a mystery. There is only One Who understands you, and that is God. Hand yourself over to Him. – Oswald Chambers

The nature of faith is that it must be tried. – Oswald Chambers

Worship and intercession must go together, the one is impossible without the other. Intercession means that we rouse ourselves up to get the mind of Christ about the one for whom we pray. – Oswald Chambers

Forgiveness is the divine miracle of grace. The cost to God was the Cross of Christ. – Oswald Chambers
