The Chamber’s Test

July 10, 2014

celebrate Jesus


Joshua said to the people, “You cannot serve the LORD…”

~Joshua 24:19


You cannot live a holy life but you can decide to let Jesus Christ make you holy.

~Oswald Chambers

my thoughts red

I am reading through MY UTMOST FOR HIS HIGHEST for the third or fourth time and yesterday’s devotion really struck a spiritual nerve. For whatever it is worth, I do agree with Chambers, “You cannot live a holy life.” Holiness is not the way to Christ–Christ is the way to holiness. Are you trusting His grace to make you holy or your goodness? Take this test:

  1. Do you have the slightest reliance on anything or anyone other than Christ?
  2. Are you relying on your gifts and abilities?
  3. Are you relying on circumstances?
  4. Are you relying on yourself, even in the slightest degree?
  5. Is your relationship with Christ sufficient for you to expect Him to work through you?
  6. Are you waiting to feel worthy before you commit yourself to Christ’s service?
  7. Are you waiting for perfect faith to make yourself available for Christ’s service?
  8. Are you willing to take risk for His sake?
  9. Are you willing to let Christ be to you, all that He said He would be?
  10. Are you willing to undergo suffering and humiliation if that is what it takes?


  • Great service last night {July 9}. We are blessed and I had a wonderful time. I love the GATHERING!
  • Vote on Block Party this Sunday. Our goal for the offering is $2,000. Pray for God’s will to be done. If anyone wants to meet with me for prayer about this project, give me a call and I will meet you somewhere. The more we pray, the better I will feel.
  • FRONT PEW shower July 20 Children’s Friday Backpack Program…these items will go to DMS and the Elementary. Unrefrigerated stacks and underwear [new]: don’t buy for a child more than 12 years old. 
  • Sunday July 27 will be CHILDREN’S MULTI-VITAMIN DAY….our goal is 100 bottles. These will be going to Guatemala in August.
