If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Colossians 3:1
Oswald Chambers’ classic devotional, My Utmost for His Highest, has been treasured by millions since it was first published by his widow in 1924. In the devotional for February 11, Chambers wrote a simple sentence that has inspired many to live for Christ: “Remember whose you are and whom you serve.”
Many a parent has sent a young adult child off to college, or out into the world, with a similar exhortation. When the road gets rough or the waves get strong, remembering whom we belong to, and thus whom we serve, can be a compass to keep us on the right path. The New Testament says something similar to Christians. We belong to Christ and serve Him as Lord; therefore, we have all the motivation we should need for living in a way that honors Him. Paul put it simply: “Walk worthy of the calling with which you were called” (Ephesians 4:1). Christ gave His life for us; walking worthy of Him means living our life for Him every day.
If you are in Christ today, let every thought, word, and deed be worthy of Him.
Remember whose you are and whom you serve. Oswald Chambers
