God’s Co-workers – Right Where We Are


by Oswald Chambers

Text: 1 Cor. 9:11-27

The first thing a worker has to learn is how to be God’s noble man or woman amid a crowd of paltry things. A Christian worker must never make this plea – “If only I were somewhere else!”

The only test that a worker is Christ’s witness is that he never becomes mean from contact with mean people, anymore than he becomes sinful from contact with sinful people.

We are not workers for God by our own choice (see John 15:16 ) Many deliberately choose to be workers for God, but they have no matter of God’s mighty grace in them, nor matter from God’s mighty Word.

The pattern for God’s worker is that he is entrusted with a mission. For example, Moses, and the Apostle Paul. We have to be in God’s hand so that He can plant men on the Rock as He has planted us, not by our testimony only, but because we are being made co-workers with God.

    Thanks for posting this one. As a worker in the Central Business District here in the Philippines, I am encouraged to know my God more and more so that my light will shine brightly, my love for other believers will grow deeper and my life will always bring glory to His name.

    Only by His grace,
