Serving God Can Bring Surprises

Feb 22, 2017 | 1 comment

Washington Gladden (1836-1918) was known in his day as an outstanding preacher and advocate of social justice. He did much to fight corruption in that era.

When he wrote the words for “O Master, Let Me Walk With Thee,” it was intended as a devotional meditation. Later, when it was suggested that it be turned into a hymn, he chose a tune by Percy Smith.

In Washington’s life-time, he was widely known for his preaching and writings. Now he is best remembered for this hymn.

We never know fully how God will use us in our life-time or after we’re gone. What we think is so important now may fade with time. Conversely, some of what we consider fairly insignificant acts of service now may be what is remembered most when we’re gone.

Therefore, let us humbly pursue God’s will for us, serve as we feel led, and trust that He will be glorified.
