On Mystery and the Trinity

"Secularism, materialism, and the intrusive presence of things have put out the  light in our souls and turned us in to a generation of zombies.  We cover our deep ignorance with words, but we are ashamed to wonder, we are afraid to whisper 'mystery.'"  ~ A.W. Tozer, The Knowledge of the Holy

How Do You View God?

"Left to ourselves we tend immediately to reduce God to manageable terms.  We want to get Him where we can use Him, or at least know where He is when we need Him.  We want a God we can in some measure control."  ~ A.W. Tozer, The Knowledge of the Holy

We Need A Different Viewpoint

"Until we have seen ourselves as God sees us, we are not likely to be much disturbed over conditions around us as long as they do not get so far out of hand as to threaten our comfortable way of life.  We have learned to live with unholiness and have come to look upon it as the natural and expected thing."  ~ A.W. Tozer, The Knowledge of the Holy

God Is Love: What Does That Mean?

"The divine attributes are what we know to be true of God.  He does not possess them as qualities; they are how God is as He reveals Himself to His creatures.  Love, for instance, is not something God has and which may grow or diminish or cease to be.  His love is the way God is, and when He loves He is simply being Himself."  ~ A. W. Tozer, The Knowledge of the Holy

All Will Be Well

"But all will be well.  In a world like this tears have their therapeutic effects.  The healing balm distilled from the garments of the enfolding Presence cures our ills before they become fatal.  The knowledge that we are never alone calms the troubled sea of our lives and speaks peace to our souls." ~  A.W. Tozer, The Knowledge of the Holy

No Limit!

" . . . there can be no limit to His presence; He is omnipresent.  In His infinitude He surrounds the finite creation and contains it.  There is no place beyond Him for anything to be.  God is our environment as the sea is to the fish and the air to the bird."  ~ A.W. Tozer, The Knowledge of the Holy

He Never Changes

"God never changes moods or cools off in His affections or loses enthusiasm.  His attitude toward sin is now the same as it was when He drove out the sinful man from the eastward garden, and His attitude toward the sinner the same as when He stretched forth His hands and cried, 'Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.'"  ~ A.W. Tozer, The Knowledge of the Holy
