Are You a Christian on Your Own Terms?

Question for the day–“Do you seek great things for yourself?”  (Jeremiah 45:5)

4_27_15_What Do You Want_#199

Are you seeking great things for yourself?  Have you said, “Oh, Lord, completely fill me with your Holy Spirit?”  If God does not, it is because you are not totally surrendered to Him; there is something you still refuse to do.  Are you prepared to ask yourself what it is you want from God and why you want it?  God always ignores your present level of completeness in favor of your ultimate future completeness.  He is not concerned about making you blessed and happy right now, but He’s continually working out His ultimate perfection for you–“. . . that they may be one just as We are one . . .” (John 17:22).  –Oswald Chambers
