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“If the Holy Spirit was withdrawn from the church today, 95 percent of what we do would go on and no one would know the difference. If the Holy Spirit had been withdrawn from the New Testament church, 95 percent of what they did would stop…” A.W. Tozer

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.

God Bless.

  1. Yes this is a huge problem for us extrovert and an completely isolating concept for the introvert.

    Our gifting causes us to walk alone in our faith because we are assigned something only we can do. Although I believe that Jesus will bring someone into your life that you can depend on.

    We need to learn to depend solely on Jesus to grow us and lead us but be open to others coming on board for the time they are to be onboard.

    Those with the call to lead ministries have the hardest time with this.
