Favorite Quotes from A.W. Tozer

Just thought I would share some of favorite quotes from A.W. Tozer. (Aiden Wilson Tozer was an American Christian pastor, preacher, author, magazine editor, and spiritual mentor.)

“God never hurries. There are no deadlines against which he must work. Only to know this is to quiet our spirits and relax our nerves.”

“Rules for Self Discovery:
1. What we want most;
2. What we think about most;
3. How we use our money;
4. What we do with our leisure time;
5. The company we enjoy;
6. Who and what we admire;
7. What we laugh at.”

“I want the presence of God Himself, or I don’t want anything at all to do with religion… I want all that God has or I don’t want any.”

“Refuse to be average. Let your heart soar as high as it will.”

“One hundred religious persons knit into a unity by careful organization do not constitute a church any more than eleven dead men make a football team.”

“When you kill time, remember that it has no resurrection.”

“The man who would truly know God must give time to Him.”

“Justice is not something God has. Justice is something that God is.”

“True faith rests upon the character of God and asks no further proof than the moral perfections of the One who cannot lie.”
