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.
