Tozer: out of the world's parade

Saturday, July 25, 2020
    Feast of James the Apostle
    No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
    —Matthew 6:24 (KJV)
    The moment we make up our minds that we are going on with this determination to exalt God overall, we step out of the world’s parade... We shall acquire a new viewpoint; a new and different psychology will be formed within us; a new power will begin to surprise us by its upsurgings and its outgoings.
    ... A. W. Tozer (1897-1963), The Pursuit of God [1948], Christian Publications, 1982, p. 96 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 6:24; 23:25; 1 Cor. 2:4-5,13; 2 Cor. 5:16-17; Tit. 2:11-12; Jas. 3:13-18; 1 Pet. 4:4
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, lead me away from the world’s ways.
