Oswald Chambers on Suffering Crisis

“We do not need the grace of God to stand crises, human nature and pride are sufficient, we can face the strain magnificently; but it does require the supernatural grace of God to live twenty-four hours in every day as a saint, to go through drudgery as a disciple, to live an ordinary, unobserved, ignored existence as a disciple of Jesus.

“It is inbred in us that we have to do exceptional things for God; but we have not. We have to be exceptional in the ordinary things, to be holy in mean streets, among mean people, and this is not learned in five minutes.”

One thought on “Oswald Chambers on Suffering Crisis”

  1. This is one thing I love about O.C. Being a stay-at-home-mom, his take on being a disciple in a very ordinary situation, where the greatest trial is that tiny issue of drudgery, is invaluable!
