Tozer: securing moral action

Saturday, January 27, 2024
    You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder. You foolish man, do you want evidence that faith without deeds is useless?
    —James 2:19-20 (NIV)
    No man is better for knowing that God in the beginning created the heaven and the earth. The devil knows that, and so did Ahab and Judas Iscariot. No man is better for knowing that God so loved the world of men that He gave His only begotten Son to die for their redemption. In hell there are millions who know that. Theological truth is useless until it is obeyed. The purpose behind all doctrine is to secure moral action.
    ... A. W. Tozer (1897-1963), Of God and Men, Harrisburg, Penn.: Christian Publications, Inc., 1960, p. 27 (see the book)
    See also Jas. 2:19-20; 1 Kings 20:13; Ps. 103:17-18; Matt. 7:24-27; 11:15; 27:3-6; Luke 14:27; John 3:16; 13:17; 14:15; 15:14; Jas. 1:22
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, lead me to act on Your truth.
