Tozer-grams

I recently finished reading a biography on the life of A.W. Tozer. The unique thing about this particular book is a little feature it added: Between each chapter the author inserted “Tozer-grams”; interesting quotes and pithy sayings from Tozer’s sermons and writings. I’ve been looking over some of them again this morning, and I include one here for your own personal ‘musing’. Enjoy! “A Christian is an odd number anyway – He feels supreme love for someone he has never seen; talks everyday with familiarity to someone he cannot see; expects to get to heaven on the virtue of another’s life; empties himself in order to be full. He admits he is wrong so he can be declared right; goes down in order to get up; is strongest when he is weakest; richest when he is poorest and happiest when he feels the worst. He dies so he can live; forsakes in order to possess; gives away so he can keep. He sees the invisible, hears the inaudible and knows that which surpasses knowledge. The man who has met God is not looking for anything; He has found it. He is not searching for light, for upon him the light has already shined. He certainly may seem to some to be narrow-minded & bigoted… but his assurance is that of one who knows by experience that his religious faith is not hearsay. He is not a copy, nor even a reasonable facsimile. He is a Divine Original, wrought from the hand of the Holy Spirit.”

“For we are God’s own handiwork; His workmanship, born anew  in Christ Jesus that we may do those good works which God predestined for us; taking those paths which He prepared ahead of time that we should walk in them – living the good life which He pre-arranged and made ready for us to live.” (Ephesians 2:10  Amplified)
