My Utmost For His Highest : "The Worship Of The Work"


April 23, 2012


Laborers together with God.

1 ;Corinthians 3:9

Beware of any work for God which enables you to evade concentration
on Him. A great many Christian workers worship their work. The one
concern of a worker should be concentration on God, and this will
mean that all the other margins of life, mental, moral and spiritual,
are free with the freedom of a child, a worshipping child, not a
wayward child. A worker without this solemn dominant note of
concentration on God is apt to get his work on his neck; there is no
margin of body, mind or spirit free, consequently he becomes spent
out and crushed. There is no freedom, no delight in life; nerves,
mind and heart are so crushingly burdened that God's blessing cannot
rest. But the other side is just as true - when once the
concentration is on God, all the margins of life are free and under
the dominance of God alone. There is no responsibility on you for the
work; the only responsibility you have is to keep in living constant
touch with God, and to see that you allow nothing to hinder your
co-operation with Him. The freedom after sanctification is the
freedom of a child, the things that used to keep the life pinned down
are gone. But be careful to remember that you are freed for one thing
only - to be absolutely devoted to your co-Worker.

We have no right to judge where we should be put, or to have
preconceived notions as to what God is fitting us for. God engineers
everything; wherever He puts us our one great aim is to pour out a
whole-hearted devotion to Him in that particular work. "Whatsoever
thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might."
