My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers

Thomas answered and said unto Him, My Lord and my God.

Click link below to study this verse: John 20:2

“Give Me to drink.” How many of us are set upon Jesus Christ slaking
our
thirst when we ought to be satisfying Him? We should be pouring out
now,
spending to the last limit, not drawing on Him to satisfy us. “Ye shall
be
witnesses unto Me” – that means a life of unsullied, uncompromising and
unbribed devotion to the Lord Jesus, a satisfaction to Him wherever He
places us.

Beware of anything that competes with loyalty to Jesus Christ. The
greatest competitor of devotion to Jesus is service for Him. It is
easier
to serve than to be drunk to the dregs. The one aim of the call of God
is
the satisfaction of God, not a call to do something for Him. We are not
sent to battle for God, but to be used by God in His battlings. Are we
being more devoted to service than to Jesus Christ?
