E.M. Bounds on Faith

Faith is not an aimless act of the soul, but a looking to God and a resting upon His promises. Just as love and hope have always an objective so, also, has faith. Faith is not believing just anything; it is believing God, resting in Him, trusting His Word.

Tozer on God vs. Religion

“I want the presence of God Himself, or I don’t want anything at all to do with religion. You would never get me interested in the old maids’ social club with a little bit of Christianity thrown in to give it respectability. I want all that God has, or I don’t want any.”

A. W. Tozer

We can worship God forever.

The greatness of God’s being, the perfection of all His attributes, is something we can never fully comprehend, but before which we can only stand in awe and worship.
