“What we need very badly these days is a company of Christians who are prepared to trust God as completely now as they know they must do at the last day. For each of us the time is surely coming when we shall have nothing but God. Health and wealth and friends and hiding places will all be swept away and we shall have only God. To the man of pseudo faith that is a terrifying thought, but to real faith it is one of the most comforting thoughts the heart can entertain”–A.W. Tozer, The Root of the Righteous, 50.
“The typical view of the Christian life is that it means being delivered from all adversity. But it actually means being delivered in adversity, which is something very different”–Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest.
“Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first, the lesson afterwards.”
“Public charisma without private character will ruin you as a leader”–Wayne Cordeiro.
“Everything that God does in His ransomed children has as its long range purpose the final restoration of the divine image in human nature. Everything looks forward to the consummation. In the meantime the Christian himself can work along with God in bringing about the great change. Paul tells us how: ‘But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory even as by the Spirit of the Lord’ (2 Cor. 3:18)”–A.W. Tozer, The Root of the Righteous, 60.
