Excerpt from "September 11, Missionary Weapons" in the updated language:
The things Jesus did were the most menial of everyday tasks, and this is an indication that it takes all of God’s power in me to accomplish even the most common tasks in His way. Can I use a towel as He did? Towels, dishes, sandals, and all the other ordinary things in our lives reveal what we are made of more quickly than anything else. It takes God Almighty Incarnate in us to do the most menial duty as it ought to be done.
Jesus said, “I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you” (John 13:15). Notice the kind of people that God brings around you, and you will be humiliated once you realize that this is actually His way of revealing to you the kind of person you have been to Him. Now He says we should exhibit to those around us exactly what He has exhibited to us.
Do you find yourself responding by saying, “Oh, I will do all that once I’m out on the mission field”? Talking in this way is like trying to produce the weapons of war while in the trenches of the battlefield— you will be killed while trying to do it.
We have to go the “second mile” with God (see Matthew 5:41). Yet some of us become worn out in the first ten steps. Then we say, “Well, I’ll just wait until I get closer to the next big crisis in my life.” But if we do not steadily minister in everyday opportunities, we will do nothing when the crisis comes.

I wanted to give each of my 9 Adult Grandkids "My Utmost For His Highest by Oswald Chambers for Christmas. My husband & I have read his book for years, so much so that "Oswald" is almost a family name in our home.I searched everywhere for an affordable price on the books and was about to give up when my daughter found "Living Christian Books." The price was right and best of all the books were brand new. ( I had expected to have to resort to "used"books.) They arrived in just a few days and we were able to personalize each book and deliver them on Christmas Day. I don't suppose my Grandkids were thrilled with them, & perhaps won't read them right away, but in God's time they will find the rich treasures that are within the pages. One day I hope their books will be as marked up a mine. Thank you all at Living Books for making my Christmas wish come true.
