For His Highest - February 15, 2022

In 1910 Biddy Chambers and her husband were married and busy about their dream of starting a Bible college. Biddy took careful notes of her husband’s lectures and turned them into correspondence courses. Then complications from appendicitis rendered Biddy a widow. The teaching ministry would need to be abandoned, right? No. Biddy turned her husband’s notes into pamphlets. Eventually they were compiled into a book. My Utmost for His Highest was published in 1927. It has since sold more than thirteen million copies.

The work of Oswald Chambers surely exceeded his fondest hopes. But it was the sincere faith of his wife that made the difference. She gave what she had to Jesus. Let’s follow her example.
