As I was studying my devotional lesson this is what I had the pleasure of reading: IT IS THE LORD! “Give Me to drink.” How many of us are set upon Jesus Christ slaking our thirst when we ought to be satisfying Him? We should be pouring out now, spending to the last limit, not drawing on Him to satisfy us. “Ye shall be witnesses unto me”--- that means a life of unsullied, uncompromising and unbridled devotion to the Lord Jesus, a satisfaction to Him whenever He places us. Beware of anything that competes with loyalty to Jesus Christ. The greatest competitor of devotion to Jesus is to serve Him. It is easier to serve than to be drunk to the dregs. The one aim of the call of God is the satisfaction of God, not a call to do something for Him. We are not sent to battle for God, but to be used by God in His battling. Are we being more devoted to service than to Jesus Christ (John 20 :28). Read your bible and pray.
