Tozer: the written Word

Friday, March 6, 2020
    The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life.
    —John 6:63b (ESV)
    [Continued from yesterday]
    The Bible is the written word of God, and because it is written it is confined and limited by the necessities of ink and paper and leather. The Voice of God, however, is alive and free as the sovereign God is free. “The words that I speak unto you, they are spirit and they are life.” The life is in the speaking words. God’s word in the Bible can have power only because it corresponds to God’s word in the universe. It is the present Voice which makes the written Word all-powerful.
    ... A. W. Tozer (1897-1963), The Pursuit of God [1948], Christian Publications, 1982, p. 70 (see the book)
    See also John 6:63; Matt. 24:35; Rom. 10:17; 1 Cor. 3:6-9; 1 Thess. 2:13; 2 Tim. 3:16-17; 1 Pet. 1:23
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I hear Your Voice.
