A. W. Tozer on Simplicity, Sin, Sovereignty, Spirituality, Spiritual Warfare, and Time

awt

Simplicity
“We Christians must simplify our lives or lose untold treasures on earth and in eternity.” The Pursuit of God, 103

Sin
“The abuse of a harmless thing is the essence of sin.”
A.W. Tozer

Sovereignty of God
“The notion that hostile persons or unfavorable circumstances can prevent the will of God from being fulfilled in a human life is altogether erroneous. Nothing, no one, can hinder God or a good man.”
The Root of the Righteous, 128

Spirituality
We may as well face it: the whole level of spirituality among us is low. We have measured ourselves by ourselves until the incentive to seek higher plateaus in the things of the Spirit is all but gone.”
Of God and Men, 12.

Spiritual Warfare
“The Christian is a Holy rebel loose in the world with access to the throne of God. Satan never knows from where the danger will come.”

Time (from God’s perspective)
“God dwells in eternity but time dwells in God. He has already lived all our tomorrows as He has lived all our yesterdays.”
The Knowledge of the Holy, 45.

“God never hurries. There are no deadlines against which He must work.”
The Knowledge of the Holy, 53.
