AW Tozar – The Size of the Soul

1

September 29, 2011 by Joseph Krohn

It is my conviction that much, very much, prayer for and talk about revival these days is wasted energy…  Ignoring the confusion of figures, I might say that it is hunger that appears to have no object; it is dreamy wishing that is too weak to produce moral action. It is fanaticism on a high level for, according to John Wesley, “a fanatic is one who seeks desired ends while ignoring the constituted means to reach those ends.”… It is almost unbelievable how far we will go to avoid obeying God.  We call Jesus “Lord” and beg Him to rejuvenate our souls, but we are careful to do not the things He says. When faced with a sin, a confession or a moral alteration in our life, we find it much easier to pray half a night than to obey God.”

  1. I really enjoy reading after Tozer. He quoted from Wesley’s 37th sermon. We were just studying that as a church this last week. Keep up the good work there in Canada.
