Is This True of Me?

My Utmost His Highest

"None of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself . . ." (Acts 20:24)

It is easier to serve or work for God without a vision and without a call, because then you are not bothered by what He requires. Common sense, covered with a layer of Christian emotion, becomes your guide. You may be more prosperous and successful from the world’s perspective, and will have more leisure time, if you never acknowledge the call of God. But once you receive a commission from Jesus Christ, the memory of what God asks of you will always be there to prod you on to do His will. You will no longer be able to work for Him on the basis of common sense. . . Our ordinary and reasonable service to God may actually compete against our total surrender to Him.
