Inhaltsangabe: Warmly practical and deeply spiritual, these readings comprise the sequel to the devotional classic My Utmost for His Highest.
Klappentext: Oswald Chambers often spoke of our Lord as "presenting the Truth in nugget form"; while later the apostles "beat out the nuggets into negotiable gold." The daily readings in this book may be regarded as nuggets of spiritual truth, to be turned into coinage for daily living. This process involves not only prayerful meditation, but as Dr. Chambers would insist, strenuous thought and spiritual concentration. Here is a worthy sequel to the devotional classic, My Utmost for His Highest. These selections from the writings of Oswald Chambers are warmly practical and deeply spiritual. They offer more than pious phrases and sweet thoughts, but actually constitute a commentary on real-life issues. A few samples . . . Faith cannot be intellectually defined; faith is the inborn captivity to see God behind everything, the wonder that keeps you an eternal child. We must learn to draw on the supernatural power of God, realizing that our enemies are supernatural, not natural; that our battling is not with difficult circumstances, it is altogether a battling that God is waging for us if we will draw on the supernatural forces. A Christian life lived on any other plane is an impossible life . . . no Christian has a right to be weak in God's strength. The Christian knows by bitter yet blessed conviction of sin that no man is sufficient for himself, and he thereby enters into identification with the cross of Calvary, and he longs and prays and works to see the sinful, self-centered world broken up and made the occasion for the mighty cross to have its way whereby men may come to God and God comes to men. Our Lord rebuked the disciples for fearing when apparently they had good reason for being alarmed. The problem is -- if Jesus Christ is only the carpenter of Nazareth, then the disciples were foolish to put Him at the tiller, but if He is the Son of God, what are they alarmed about? If Jesus Christ is God, where is my trust in Him? If He is not God, why am I so foolish as to pretend to worship Him?
