Real Heroes

“We have a tendency to look for wonder in our experience, and we mistake heroic actions for real heroes. It’s one thing to go through a crisis grandly, yet quite another to go through every day glorifying God when there is no witness, no limelight and no one paying even the remotest attention to us….If you are properly devoted to the Lord Jesus, you have reached the lofty height where no one would ever notice you personally. All that is noticed is the power of God coming though you all the time.”

“The true test of a saint’s life is not successfulness but faithfulness on the human level of life. Our human relationships are the very conditions in which the ideal life of God should be exhibited.”
~ From My Utmost for His Highest, Oswald Chambers

So here we are with another regular Monday. Will we live out faithfulness to God in the ordinary moments of life?
