Tozer: a disturbing adoration

Sunday, August 19, 2018
    Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do..
    —Luke 23:34 (KJV)
    The love of Christ both wounds and heals, it fascinates and frightens, it kills and makes alive, it draws and repulses, it sobers and enraptures. There can be nothing more terrible or wonderful than to be stricken with love for Christ so deeply that the whole being goes out in a pained adoration of His person, an adoration that disturbs and disconcerts while it purges and satisfies and relaxes the deep inner heart.
    ... A. W. Tozer (1897-1963), That Incredible Christian, Harrisburg, Penn.: Christian Publications, Inc., 1964, p. 129-130 (see the book)
    See also Luke 23:34; Acts 9:16; 2 Cor. 5:14-15; Eph. 3:16-19
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I kneel in awe at Your mercy towards me.
