Respect for God

A. W. Tozer writeA_W_Tozers,

The God of the modern evangelical rarely astonishes anybody. He manages to stay pretty much within the constitution. Never breaks our bylaws. He’s a very well-behaved God and very denominational and very much one of us, and we ask Him to help us when we’re in trouble and look to Him to watch over us when we’re asleep. The God of the modern evangelical isn’t a God I could have much respect for. But when the Holy Ghost shows us God as He is, we admire Him to the point of wonder and delight.

  1. Great reminder of Gods sovereignty not being confined to a box. The Hebrew word for “Holy” always carries a parallel connotation of “otherness” to our human perspective. God is rarely predictable and rather dynamic in His Spirits work in human history.
