One of the deepest Christian writers of modern times, A.W. Tozer, was called “a 20th century prophet.” Since his death in 1963, his writings, which often exposed the shallowness of the modern church, have led countless believers into a deeper walk with God.
What then would a wise man like Tozer have to say about our use of time? In his book, “Following Hard After God,” Tozer writes:
“Every age has its own characteristics. 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 the servile imitation of the world which marks our promotional methods all testify that we in this day know God imperfectly, and the peace of God scarcely at all.”
Words of wisdom, from a man who redeemed the time.
