Prayer Instead of Obedience

“Prayer is never an acceptable substitute for obedience.
The sovereign Lord accepts no offering from His creatures
that is not accompanied by obedience.
To pray for revival while ignoring or actually flouting the plain
precept laid down in the Scriptures is to waste a lot of words and
get nothing for our trouble.”

A.W. Tozer Quote

The God of the modern evangelical rarely astonishes anybody.

He manages to stay pretty much with the constitution.

Never break our by-laws.

He’s a very well-behaved God and very denominational

and very much like one of us…

we ask Him to help us when we’re in trouble

and look to Him to watch over us when we’re asleep.

The God of the modern evangelical isn’t a God I could have much respect for.

Killing Time?

What are you doing with your time?

Killing time?

Investing?

Saving?

Making the best use?


“Time is a resource that is non-renewable and non-transferable. You cannot store it, slow it up, hold it up, divide it up or give it up. You can’t hoard it up or save it for a rainy day—when it’s lost it is unrecoverable. When you kill time, remember that it has no resurrection.”

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 (ESV)
3 For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:
2 a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
3 a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
4 a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
5 a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
6 a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
7 a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
8 a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.

Ephesians 5:15-16 (ESV)
15  Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise,
16  making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.

Cultivate Truth – A.W. Tozer

Each generation of Christians must look to its beliefs. While truth itself is unchanging, the minds of men are porous vessels out of which truth can leak and into which error may seep to dilute the truth they contain. The humanheart is heretical by nature and runs to error as naturally as a garden to weeds. All a man, a church or a denomination needs to guarantee deterioration of doctrine is to take everything for granted and do nothing. The unattended garden will soon be overrun with weeds; the heart that fails to cultivate truth and root out error will shortly be a theological wilderness; the church or denomination that grows careless on the highway of truth will before long find itself astray, bogged down in some mud flat from which there is no escape.
