Submission Better than Sacrifice

"I am not appealed to on the line that I am of 'more use' in certain places. It is me where He wills. Bless the Lord, He guides! Pay attention to the source and He will look after the outflow....

He is preparing us for what He is preparing for us. ...[Christ said] 'As the Father sent me, so send I you'. His first obedience was to the will of God, not the needs of mankind. The voice of the age that says 'Here you will be most good,' is to my mind the voice of the tempter. It is where He places us."

- Oswald Chambers
