My Utmost for His Highest – January 11, 2017

WHAT MY OBEDIENCE TO GOD COSTS OTHER PEOPLE

As they led Him away, they laid hold of a certain man, Simon…, and on him they laid the cross that he might bear it after Jesus.  Luke 23:26

If we are in love with our Lord, obedience does not cost us anything – it is a delight.  But to those who do not love Him, our obedience does cost a great deal.  It will mean that other people’s plans are upset.  If we obey God, He will care for those who have suffered the consequences of our obedience.  We must simply obey and leave all the consequences with Him.

Oswald Chambers
