There is nothing more important than our devotion to Jesus Christ. The most important thing we can do is to praise Jesus – in all things and situations we need to offer our praise to him.
Once someone begins to hear that call, a suffering worthy of the name of Christ is produced. Suddenly, every ambition, every desire of life, and every outlook is completely blotted out and extinguished. Only one thing remains— “. . . separated to the gospel. . . .” Woe be to the soul who tries to head in any other direction once that call has come to him. (Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest, February 2).
