Morning Musing

The whole transaction of religious conversion has been made mechanical and spiritless. Faith may now be exercised without a jar of the moral life and without embarrassment to the Adamic ego. Christ may be “received” without creating any special love for Him in the soul of the receiver. The man is “saved,” but is not hungry nor thirsty after God. In fact, he is specifically taught to be satisfied and is encouraged to be content with little.”
- The Pursuit of God – p. 12-13, A.W. Tozer (emphasis mine)

So sad is the state of things when a man or woman come to God and are not so thrilled as to hunger and thirst for him… even worse, for those who know the Lord, when our tastebuds dull to the inexpressible joy of savoring Jesus Christ.

May we not be “content with little.”

Be not content friends…

  1. May we never lose our hunger or thirst for more of Jesus. May it terrify us if we feel that our spiritual tastebuds are beginning to crave other things more. Thanks for the post Ryan. I’ve been enjoying my trek through the book of John in the mornings. It’s still exciting to me to walk with Jesus.
