The Saint Must Walk Alone?
What a contrary thought to our modern day Christianity. Nowadays, the common teaching is that evidence of the Holy Spirit is that people love you, you fit in, you have lots of money, fame, etc.
Another quote from A.W. Tozer-
“If the Holy Spirit was withdrawn from the church today, 95 percent of what we do would go on and no one would know the difference. If the Holy Spirit had been withdrawn from the New Testament church, 95 percent of what they did would stop…” A.W. TozerTweet
As I was wallowing in my own spiritual decay last night, I was watching a number of different videos on YouTube. But as YouTube (Google), knowing my every interest, popped up some political and Christian videos. And while I normally don’t like “watching” audio books, I wanted to hear what Tozer said.
Tozer talks about the loneliness of the Christian. The isolation. And what really got my ears peaked was the spiritual state of the “Saint”. He mentioned how the saint often feels like the worst example of a Christian. They are utterly ashamed of their sins.
Anyway, I just wanted to throw this out there for myself and others who may need to hear it.
