A.W. Tozer Quote: “The Bible tells us how to be saved, but textualism goes on to make it tell us that we are saved, something which in the very nature of things it cannot do.

A.W. Tozer Quote: “God is a Person, and in the deep of His mighty nature He thinks, wills, enjoys, feels, loves, desires and suffers as any other person may.

The continuous and unembarrassed interchange of love and thought between God and the soul of the redeemed man is the throbbing heart of New Testament.”

A.W. Tozer Quote: “The gospel can lift this destroying burden from the mind, give beauty for ashes, and the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.

Low views of God destroy the gospel for all who hold them.”

A.W. Tozer Quote: “Why do some persons ‘find’ God in a way that others do not?

He has no favorites within His household. All He has ever done for any of His children He will do for all of His children. The difference lies not with God but with us.”

A.W. Tozer Quote: “Nicolas Herman, who was commonly known as Brother Lawrence, was a simple dishwasher in the institution where he lived. He said he did those dishes for the glory of God.

A.W. Tozer Quote: “To admit the existence of a need in God is to admit incompleteness in the divine Being. Need is a creature-word and cannot be spoken of the Creator. God has a voluntary relationg to everything He has made, but He has no Necessary relation to anything outside of Himself. His interest in His creatures arises from His sovereign good pleasure, not from any need those creatures can supply nor from any completeness they can dring to Him who is complete in himself.”
