I wonder if what Oswald Chambers shares below might have something to do with the delight the Father expressed after his Son Jesus came up from being baptized in the Jordan River?
This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased-delighted!
Until we discover because of His grace alone, that we ARE a perfect delight to Him, our Father, we will settle for dressing ourselves up with whatever eye candy is available.
Although we remain His sons, we live as orphans, fending for ourselves, and trying to win His affections.
Our Lord makes a disciple His own possession, He becomes responsible for him. "Ye shall be witnesses unto Me." The spirit that comes in is not that of doing anything for Jesus, but of being a perfect delight to Him. The secret of the missionary is - I am His, and He is carrying out His enterprises through me.
Be entirely His.
