Tozer: the Living Word

Thursday, March 5, 2020
    It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh is of no avail.
    —John 6:63a (ESV)
    The why of natural law is the living Voice of God immanent in His creation. And this word of God which brought all worlds into being cannot be understood to mean the Bible, for it is not a written or printed word at all, but the expression of the will of God spoken into the structure of all things. This word of God is the breath of God filling the world with living potentiality. The Voice of God is the most powerful force in nature, indeed the only force in nature, for all energy is here only because the power-filled Word is being spoken. [Continued tomorrow]
    ... A. W. Tozer (1897-1963), The Pursuit of God [1948], Christian Publications, 1982, p. 70 (see the book)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are the final cause of all that is and will be.
