Tozer: keeping God in his place

Monday, September 19, 2016
    Commemoration of Theodore of Tarsus, Archbishop of Canterbury, 690
    [Jesus:] “For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his deeds have been carried out in God.”
    —John 3:20-21 (ESV)
    I think that most Christians would be better pleased if the Lord did not inquire into their personal affairs too closely. They want Him to save them, to keep them happy, and to take them off to heaven at last, but not to be too inquisitive about their conduct or services.
    ... A. W. Tozer (1897-1963), That Incredible Christian, Harrisburg, Penn.: Christian Publications, Inc., 1964, p. 105 (see the book)
    See also John 3:20-21; Amos 5:10; Luke 11:45; John 7:7; Jas. 1:23-25
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, shine Your light in the darkest places of my life.
