A. W. Tozer is widely held as a prophetic voice. His heart was captivated by God. His ability to communicate truth about the heart of man and the heart of God was profound; let’s listen to some of his thoughts:
‘Our Father which art in heaven, we Thy children are often troubled in mind, hearing within us at once the affirmations of faith and the accusations of conscience. We are sure that there is in us nothing that could attract the love of One as holy and as just as Thou art. Yet Thou hast declared Thine unchanging love for us in Christ Jesus. If nothing in us can win Thy love, nothing in the universe can prevent Thee from loving us. Thy love is uncaused and undeserved. Thou art Thyself the reason for the love wherewithal we are loved. Help us to believe the intensity, the eternity of the love that has found us. Then love will cast out fear; and our troubled hearts will be at peace, trusting not in what we are but in what Thou hast declared Thyself to be. Amen.’
‘From God’s other known attributes we may learn much about His love. We can know, for instance, that because God is self-existent, His love had no beginning; because He is eternal, His love can have no end; because He is infinite, it has no limit; because He is holy, it is the quintessence of all spotless purity; because He is immense, His love is an incomprehensibly vast, bottomless, shoreless sea before which we kneel in joyful silence and from which the loftiest eloquence retreats confused and abashed.’
‘The love of God is one of the great realities of the universe, a pillar upon which the hope of the world rests. But it is a personal, intimate thing, too. God does not love populations, He loves people. He loves not masses, but men. He loves us all with a mighty love that has no beginning and can have no end.
In Christian experience there is a highly satisfying love content that distinguishes it from all other religions and elevates it to heights far beyond even the purest and noblest philosophy.
This love content is more than a thing; it is God Himself in the midst of His Church singing over His people.
True Christian joy is the heart’s harmonious response to the Lord’s song of love.’
The Knowledge of The Holy A. W. Tozer
Worship is the response of a believing heart to a revelation of God. Revelation of his heart changes us.
Like the Psalmist said:
‘May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.’
