Everything Changes

The more messed up this world gets, the more God makes sense.

The Sphere Of The Godly Life

The difficulty in Christian work today is that we put it into a sphere that upsets the reasoning of things - this sphere for sacred and that for secular; this time for activity and that for study. God will never allow us to divide our lives into sacred and secular, into study and activity.

We generally think of a student as one who shuts himself up and studies in a reflective way, but that is never revealed in God's book. A Christian's thinking ought to be done in activities, not in reflection, because we only come to right discernment in activities. Some incline to study naturally in the reflective sense, others incline more to steady active work; the Bible combines both in one life.

We apt to look on workers for God as a special class, but that is foreign to the New Testament. Our Lord was a carpenter; Paul was a weaver. If you try and live in compartments, God will tumble up the time. Acknowledge Him in all your ways, and He will bring you into the circumstances that will develop the particular side of your life that He wants developed - and be careful that you do not upset His plans by bringing in your own ideas.

Oswald Chambers | Approved Unto God p.23

For yourself, concentrate on winning God's approval, on being a workman with nothing to be ashamed of, and who knows how to use the word of truth to the best advantage.

2 Timothy 2:15 | Phillips Translation
