My Utmost For His Highest : "Am I My Brother's Keeper?"


February 15, 2012


None of us liveth to himself.

Romans 14:7

Has it ever dawned on you that you are responsible for other souls
spiritually before God? For instance, if I allow any private
deflection from God in my life, everyone about me suffers. We "sit
together in heavenly places." "Whether one member suffer, all the
members suffer with it." When once you allow physical selfishness,
mental slovenliness, moral obtuseness, spiritual density, everyone
belonging to your crowd will suffer. "But," you say, "who is
sufficient for these things if you erect a standard like that?" "Our
sufficiency is of God," and of Him alone.

"Ye shall be My witnesses." How many of us are willing to spend every
ounce of nervous energy, of mental, moral and spiritual energy we
have for Jesus Christ? That is the meaning of a witness in God's
sense of the word. It takes time, be patient with yourself. God has
left us on the earth - what for? To be saved and sanctified? No, to
be at it for Him. Am I willing to be broken bread and poured out wine
for Him? To be spoilt for this age, for this life, to be spoilt from
every standpoint but one - saving as I can disciple men and women to
the Lord Jesus Christ. My life as a worker is the way I say "thank
you" to God for His unspeakable salvation. Remember it is quite
possible for any one of us to be flung out as reprobate silver - ". .
. lest that by any means when I have preached to others, I myself
should be a castaway."
