My Utmost for His HighestFor nearly eighty years countless millions of Christians the world over have trusted the spiritual companionship of Oswald Chambers’s classic daily devotional My Utmost for His Highest These brief scripture bas This book makes me so crazy He'll say something like An average view of the Christian life is that it means deliverance from trouble It is deliverance in trouble which is very different August 2 And I'll say Yes and Amen Then two paragraphs later he'll say God does not give us overcoming life; He gives us life as we over come And I'll say What? No Jesus HAS past tense overcome the world John 1633 We don't overcome the world so much as live in that belief 1 John 545 The work is done we're not doing itOn the upside when Chambers missteps it's just about always in one of two directions; he expects the Christian to be perfect in obedience and he downplays Christian community In other words he has a bad habit of occasionally putting the Christian individual ahead of God and ahead of others Unfortunately what this means is that he takes the focus off of God and puts it on self which is not what I'm looking for in a devotionalOswald says God does not give us overcoming life; He gives us life as we overcome When the inspiration of God comes and He says Arise from the dead we have to get up; God does not lift us up Feb 16 But Paul says we are raised up with Christ Colossians 31 Too often Chambers demands that we perform; the Bible says the work has been done and our job is to live within that fact Oswald did not I trust believe that we can earn our salvation but he still liked the idea that man can do good works for God But anything we can do for God comes from God the fruit of the Spirit is love joy peace patience kindness goodness faithfulness gentleness and self control Galatians 522 23 While Christians should demonstrate these ualities we cannot generate them so when Oswald encourages people to produce these ualities he can turn one's attention off of God and onto selfI would definitely not recommend this book for a new Christian or for one who struggles with legalism or who tends to believe in the whole earn your way to heaven approach And I wouldn't use it as my daily devotional because too often it does not direct the reader to Christ but rather pushes the reader toward good behavior a very different goal I guess I might recommend it to someone who is solidly grounded in grace but is looking for a push in the performance department which is kind of why I'm sticking with it I suppose And I do think Chambers has some good things to say But if someone asked I'd probably recommend Piper's Desiring God first
