God’s Faithful Voice

A.W. Tozerby A.W. Tozer

And take heed to yourselves . . . and cares of this life. Luke 21:34

In a day when judgments are soon to come upon the earth, often doctors warn that we eat too much and worry too much. More of us suffer from mental illness than suffer from major physical illnesses. In our self-centered lives, even those who are professing believers are prone to think they will hear the trumpets of woe in time to do something about all this. But at that time, it will be too late! The voice of God is a quiet voice. The voice of God’s love and grace is constant-never strident, never compulsive. God has sent His messengers to every generation. He has spoken urgently and faithfully through His prophets, through the concerns of preachers and evangelists, and even through the sweet voices of gospel singers. Further, God has spoken through witnessing men and women—plain, sincere, loving men and women transformed by a spiritual birth from above. This is the voice of God we hear in this day of grace—the voice of the Savior calling wandering sinners home.

Love Without Measure

A.W. Tozerby A.W. Tozer

Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love. Jeremiah 31:3

I once wrote something about how God loves us and how dear we are to Him. I was not sure I should put it down on paper, but God knows what I meant. I wrote, “The only eccentricity that I can discover in the heart of God is the fact that a God such as He is should love sinners such as we are!” On this earth, a mother will love the son who has betrayed her and shamed her and is now on his way to a life in prison. That seems to be a natural thing for a mother. But there is nothing natural about this love of God. It is a divine thing. It is forced out by the inward pressure within the heart of the God of all grace. That is why He waits for us, puts up with us, desires to lead us on—He loves us! My brethren, this should be our greatest encouragement in view of all that we know about ourselves: God loves us without measure, and He is so keenly interested in our spiritual growth and progress that He stands by in faithfulness to teach and instruct and discipline us as His own dear children!
