I received a wonderful gift from a dear friend and sister in Christ for Christmas the other day. Although dated to begin in January, I have been getting a head start and in today’s dated writing A.W. Tozer has penned some very challenging words to those who would endeavor to walk in God’s move in our day. I believe what you will read is a diagnosis of our state of faith and a prescription for becoming well in Christ. Please prayerfully consider what you are about to read.
“I hope some of you will agree with me that it is of far greater importance that we have better Christians than that we have more of them.
If we have any spiritual concerns, our most pressing obligation is to do all in our power to obtain a revival that will result in a reformed, revitalized and powerful church.
Each generation of Christians is the seed of the next and degenerate seed is sure to produce a degenerate harvest- not little better than but worse than the seed from which it sprang. This direction will be down until vigorous effective means are taken to improve the seed.
Why is it easier to talk of revival than to experience revival? Because followers of Christ must become personally involved in the death and resurrection of Christ. And this requires repentance, prayer, watchfulness, self denial, detachment from the world, humility, obedience and cross carrying.”
My Friends are we willing to walk in that calling… Brother Michael
Mike your words and directions are always so enlightening and God filled. I will forever be so proud, in a good sense, of you. God has His hand heavy on your life. Give Kim and the kids our love and prayers.
