If I put my trust in human beings first, I will end in despairing of everyone; I will become bitter because I have insisted on man being what no man ever can be — absolutely right. Never trust anything but the grace of God in yourself or in anyone else.

Oswald Chambers My Utmost for His Highest


There is strong propaganda from the world right now that we need to “just trust ourselves,” and this quote is a good reminder of the folly in this notion. It is also a good reminder for Christians not to place our faith in our spiritual leaders, as they are only flawed men. I know many people that have become jaded by corruption in the church and, as a result, stopped attending. Satan loves this because it fractures the body. Christians must meet together in person, which means subjecting ourselves to the fallibility of man. Be sure your faith is firmly rooted in Christ so that if Satan manages to corrupt your leader, the damage stops there and doesn’t spread to the rest of the body. Man can fail you, but Jesus never will.
