Quotes from AW Tozer’s “God’s Pursuit of Man”

Gods pursuit man

  • …there is about the gospel an ugency, a finality which will not be heard or felt except by the enabling of the Spirit. (p21)

  •  The degree of blessing enjoyed by any man will correspond exactly with the completeness of God’s victory over him. (p45-6)

  • The flesh, smiling and confident, preaches and sings about the cross; before the cross it bows and toward the cross it points with carefully staged histrionics – but upon that cross it will not die, and the reproach of that cross it stubbornly refuses to bear. (p53)

  • In religion more than in any other field of human experience a sharp distinction must always be made between knowing about and knowing. The distinction is the same as between knowing about food and actually eating it. A man can die of starvation knowing only about bread, and a man can remain spiritually dead while knowing all the historic facts of Christianity. (p63-4)

  • Man by reason cannot know God; he can only know about God. (p75)

  • He [the Holy Spirit] will always act like Jesus, toward sinners in compassion, toward saint in warm affection, toward human suffering in tenderest pity and love. (p71)
