Tozer: sin as a misdirection

Tuesday, August 9, 2016
    Feast of Mary Sumner, Founder of the Mothers’ Union, 1921
    Take care, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart, leading you to fall away from the living God.
    —Hebrews 3:12 (ESV)
    Unbelief is actually perverted faith, for it puts its trust, not in the living God but in dying men. The unbeliever denies the self-sufficiency of God and usurps attributes that are not his. This dual sin dishonors God and ultimately destroys the soul of the man.
    ... A. W. Tozer (1897-1963), The Knowledge of the Holy, Harper & Row, 1975, p. 42 (see the book)
    See also Heb. 3:12; Gen. 8:21; Jer. 18:21; Lam. 3:17-18; Matt. 17:17; Mark 7:21-23; 16:14; John 20:27
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I ask that the unbelief of my friends, ____ and ____, may be alleviated in favor of acknowledgement of You.
