Decisions Of Faith That Impact Others

Book Texture Quote

If we obey God it is going to cost other people more than it costs us, and that is where the sting comes in. If we are in love with our Lord, obedience does not cost us anything, it is a delight, but it costs those who do not love Him a good deal. If we obey God it will mean that other people’s plans are upset, and they will gibe us with it—“You call this Christianity?” We can prevent the suffering; but if we are going to obey God, we must not prevent it, we must let the cost be paid.

Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest (Westwood, NJ: Barbour and Company, 1963), 11.
