Some favourite Christian quotes by Dr Tozer

 "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."
- from 'The Counsellor'

"I wonder also how many Christians in our day have truly and completely abandoned themselves to Jesus Christ as their Lord. We are very busy telling people to "accept Christ"-and that seems to be the only word we are using. We arrange a painless acceptance."
- from 'Who Put Jesus on the Cross?'

 "The world lives in such a time of crisis. Christians alone are in a position to rescue the perishing. We dare not settle down to try to live as if things were normal."

- from 'Born After Midnight'

"But a lot of people have gone too far and have written books and poetry that gets everybody believing that God is so kind and loving and gentle. God is so kind that infinity won´t measure it. And God is so loving that He is immeasurably loving. But God is also holy and just."

- from 'The Attributes of God, Volume One'

"In some circles, God has been abridged, reduced, modified, edited, changed and amended until He is no longer the God whom Isaiah saw, high and lifted up."
- from 'Whatever Happened to Worship?'

"No matter what the circumstances, we Christians should keep our heads. God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, of love and of a sound mind. It is a dismal thing to see a son of heaven cringe in terror before the sons of earth."
- from 'The Warfare of the Spirit'

"Rightly understood, faith is not a substitute for moral conduct but a means toward it. The tree does not serve in lieu of fruit but as an agent by which fruit is secured. Fruit, not trees, is the end God has in mind in yonder orchard; so Christ-like conduct is the end of Christian faith."

- from 'Size of the Soul'

"The only fear I have is to fear to get out of the will of God. Outside of the will of God, there´s nothing I want, and in the will of God there´s nothing I fear, for God has sworn to keep me in His will."

- from 'Success and the Christian: The Cost of Spiritual Maturity'
