Spend Some Time with Tozer

Mornings With TozerOne of my all time favorite authors is A.W. Tozer.  I was first introduced to him in college when I was given the assignment to read different entries in the Best of Tozer compilation works.  From there, I added him to my daily devotions, and it’s true what they say, he really does make you want to read your Bible more.

Mornings with Tozer is a devotional with excerpts from different writings and sermons from Tozer on a given topic formatted to be read each day of the year.  That means there’s 366 entries, just in case it’s a leap year.

Never Good Enough

A. W. Tozer, in one of his books on Worship, has a shocking statement.  He basically tells his readers that they are worshipping incorrectly—but that it’s ok, because everyone worships incorrectly.

Why?  Because we cannot worship God fully until we are changed out of this sinful body and into a glorified one.

Because no matter how hard we try, we are imperfect.  Our sin nature falls short of perfection, and even though we have accepted Christ as Savior and have been redeemed through His shed blood, we are still at war with the Old Man.  We still have a nature that is imperfect.

It’s frustrating to try to be good, and yet know of its impossibility.  And yet we all know this quite well because of dealings in all areas of life.  Whether it’s relationships or our jobs, we all know that we can never be perfect, no matter how hard we try.

Frustrating, and yet peaceful—knowing that someday this will be made right.

Evangelical Christianity and the New Testament Standard

Evangelical Christianity is now tragically below the New Testament standard. Worldliness is an accepted part of our way of life. Our religious mood is social instead of spiritual. We have lost the art of worship. We are not producing saints. Our models are successful businessmen, celebrated athletes and theatrical personalities. We carry on our religious activities after the methods of the modern advertiser. Our homes have been turned into theaters. Our literature is shallow and our hymnody borders on sacrilege. And scarcely anyone appears to care.

Of God and Men, A. W. Tozer
