Tozer: the wrath of God

Thursday, January 19, 2012
    Commemoration of Wulfstan, Bishop of Worcester, 1095
    See, the day of the LORD is coming—a cruel day, with wrath and fierce anger—to make the land desolate and destroy the sinners within it.
    —Isaiah 13:9 (NIV)
    The holiness of God, the wrath of God, and the health of the creation are inseparably united. Not only is it right for God to display anger at sin, but I find it impossible to understand how He could do otherwise.
    God’s wrath is His utter intolerance of whatever degrades or destroys.
    ... A. W. Tozer (1897-1963), Man: The Dwelling Place of God, Harrisburg, Penn.: Christian Publications, Inc., 1966, p. 111 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, fill me with intolerance for my sin.
