My Utmost For His Highest : "Are You Ready To Be Offered?"

February 5, 2012

Yea, and if I be offered upon the sacrifice and service
of your faith, I joy and rejoice with you all.
Philippians 2:17
Are you willing to be offered for the work of the faithful - to pour
out your life blood as a libation on the sacrifice of the faith of
others? Or do you say - "I am not going to be offered up just yet, I
do not want God to choose my work. I want to choose the scenery of my
own sacrifice; I want to have the right kind of people watching and
saying, 'Well done.'
It is one thing to go on the lonely way with dignified heroism, but
quite another thing if the line mapped out for you by God means being
a door-mat under other people's feet. Suppose God wants to teach you
to say, "I know how to be abased" - are you ready to be offered up
like that? Are you ready to be not so much as a drop in a bucket - to
be so hopelessly insignificant that you are never thought of again in
connection with the life you served? Are you willing to spend and be
spent; not seeking to be ministered unto, but to minister? Some
saints cannot do menial work and remain saints because it is beneath
their dignity.
