"It is easier to serve God without a vision, easier to work for God without a call, because when you are not bothered by what God requires; common sense is your guide, veneered over with Christian sentiment. You will be more prosperous and successful, more leisure-hearted, if you never realize the call of God. But if once you receive a commission from Jesus Christ, the memory of what God wants will always come back like a goad; you will no longer be able to work for him on a common sense basis. …There is no choice of service, only absolute loyalty to Our Lord’s commission; loyalty to what you discern when you are in the closest contact with God."

--Oswald Chambers
