On the Question of Peace

In preparation for our Men’s Bible Study, I read this painfully, spot-on quote regarding the church in America. Ironically it was written in 1948 and has never been truer:

“Right now we are in an age of religious complexity. The simplicity which is in Christ is rarely found among us. In its stead are programs, methods, organizations, and a world of nervous activities which occupy time and attention but can never satisfy the longing of the heart. The shallowness of our inner experience, the hollowness of our worship and that servile imitation of the world which marks our promotional methods all testify that we, in this day, know God only imperfectly, and the peace of God scarcely at all.”

– A.W. Tozer “The Pursuit of God”

“Lord please give us a fresh passion to know You in Your all-encompassing sufficiency so that we can make You known to the world around us that desperately needs to hear the truth…amen.”

    I like the reason “why” you pray for this fresh passion.
