This commentary is written to aid and encourage maturing Christians who sometimes
find the book by Oswald Chambers My Utmost for His Highest difficult
to understand in his original language. I have observed that this book is owned
and cherished but not customarily read. I believe there are words here that were
inspired by the Holy Spirit and have been preserved for disciples of Jesus Christ.
After Oswald Chambers death in Egypt in 1917 at the age of forty-three, his
widow began to assemble and publish his teachings. In 1935 Dodd, Mead, and Company,
published My Utmost for His Highest in the United States. I was
introduced to this forty-five years later. When Barbour and Company published
this book, using the same language and providing space for personal notes I bought
and used it.
Should you respond to my invitation to learn from Oswald Chambers how to mature
as a disciple of Jesus Christ you will need one or the other of these books. The
design of this study is that you read Oswald Chambers’ words for the day
and the scripture, then this commentary. It is not a theological study, nor is
it written to be a daily devotional guide. This is written to encourage those
who have read a few lessons and decided “this is too deep for me”. My aim is to correct that attitude. I think if you understand the teachings in
this book, you will have hinds feet and be able to walk upon the high places as
described in Habakkuk 3:19.
