So O. Chambers is talking about Romans 8 and says this, "Beware of outstripping God by your very longing to do His will. We run ahead of Him in a thousand and one activities, consequently we get so burdened with persons and with difficulties that we do not worship God, we do not intercede."
What fantastic thoughts regarding relationships! To bring each difficult person and circumstance before God in prayer, surrendering our own opinions and feelings. Sounds easy when sitting down for a quiet time, but not as much when someone causes me great distress.
He goes on to say, "A heartless Christian must be a terrible grief to Our Lord."
One reason i never wanted to be a Christian. And here I am.
