God one desire for humanity – Oswald Chambers

God one desire for humanity – Oswald Chambers

God has one destined end for mankind—holiness! His one aim is the production of saints. God is not an eternal blessing-machine for men. He did not come to save men out of pity. He came to save men because He had created them to be holy.

God’s training is for now – Oswald Chambers

God’s training is for now – Oswald Chambers

God’s training is for now, not later. His purpose is for this very minute, not for sometime in the future. We have nothing to do with what will follow our obedience, and we are wrong to concern ourselves with it. What people call preparation, God sees as the goal itself.

Understanding the Bible – Oswald Chambers

There are tremendous thoughts expressed in God’s Book, and unless we have learned to rely on the Holy Spirit we shall say, “Oh, I shall never understand that.” But the Holy Spirit understands it, and as we recognize that and rely on Him, He will work it out, whether we consciously understand or not.

The One Secret of a Holy Life – Oswald Chambers

The one marvelous secret of a holy life lies not in imitating Jesus, but in letting the perfections of Jesus manifest themselves in my mortal flesh. Sanctification is “Christ in you.”… Sanctification is not drawing from Jesus the power to be holy; it is drawing from Jesus the holiness that was manifested in Him, and He manifests it in me.
