Tozer: the Person behind the Bible

Thursday, March 15, 2018
    Now it came about that while the people came pushing to be near him, and to have knowledge of the word of God, he was by a wide stretch of water named Gennesaret; And he saw two boats by the edge of the water, but the fishermen had gone out of them and were washing their nets. And he got into one of the boats, the property of Simon, and made a request to him to go a little way out from the land. And being seated he gave the people teaching from the boat.
    —Luke 5:1-3 (BBE)
    A loving Personality dominates the Bible, walking among the trees of the garden and breathing fragrance over every scene. Always a living Person is present, speaking, pleading, loving, working, and manifesting himself whenever and wherever his people have the receptivity necessary to receive the manifestation.
    ... A. W. Tozer (1897-1963), The Pursuit of God [1948], Christian Publications, 1982, p. 48 (see the book)
    See also Luke 5:1-3; Gen. 3:8; Luke 24:30-32,36; John 4:6-10; 11:35; 20:14-17,19-20; Heb. 2:17; 4:15
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You came to me long before I came to You.
