A.W. Tozer Quote of the Week

AWTzer TozerHead

Appearances
I say that a Christian congregation can survive and often appear to prosper in the community by the exercise of human talent and without any touch from the Holy Spirit! All that religious activity and the dear people will not know anything better until the great and terrible day when our self-employed talents are burned with fire and only that which was wrought by the Holy Ghost will stand forever!
Tragedy in the Church: The Missing Gifts, 30.
Bored?
Man is bored, because he is too big to be happy with that which sin is giving him.  God has made him too great, his potential is too mighty.”
Who Put Jesus on the Cross, 170
Character
“Whatever a man wants badly and persistently enough will determine the man’s character.”The Root of the Righteous, 116.
Complacency
“Complacency is the deadly enemy of spiritual progress.  The contented soul is the stagnant soul.”The Size of the Soul, 22.
Conduct
“We modern Christians are long on talk and short on conduct.”
Born After Midnight, 32.
Content
“The average Christian is so cold and so contented with His wretched condition that there is no vacuum of desire into which the blessed Spirit can rush in satisfying fullness.”
Born After Midnight, 7.
Cross
“We must do something about the cross, and one of two things only we can do–flee it or die upon it.”
The Root of the Righteous, 63.
