The Church must repent of its idolization of “cool,” in which we dishonor our parents, spite our brothers and sisters in the faith, and merely set ourselves up for the sins we perceive in them — appearing “of the times.”
The next thing I did was to download his book “The Pursuit of God.” I’ve been using the Amazon Kindle App for my iPhone to read books…it’s so easy to just download a book and my phone’s always with me. This book was only 99 cents! But it’s worth far more than that.
I’m only a few chapters in but there are already some amazing truths. Here are a few of my favorites (so far):
The modern scientist has lost God amid the wonders of His world; we Christians are in real danger of losing God amid the wonders of His Word.
…but let him come defenseless before the Lord and he will have for his defender no less than God himself.
The shallowness of our inner experience, the hollowness of our worship, and that servile imitation of the world which marks our promotional methods all testify that we, in this day, know God only imperfectly, and the peace of God scarcely at all.
(God said to Levi)…”I am thy part and thine inheritance,” and by those words made him richer than all the brethren, richer than all the kings and rajas who have ever lived in the world.
God’s gifts now take the place of God, and the whole course of nature is upset by the monstrous substitution.
So, I highly recommend the teaching of A.W. Tozer this week. Do you have any recommendations for me??
