The Most Important Thing About Us

Post date: Sep 28, 2010 8:22:11 PM

With the very first line of his book, "The Knowledge of the Holy" A.W. Tozer writes,

What comes to our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.

We could spend some time arguing the validity of the statement or we could simply agree that what we think about God is extremely important. I offer a challenge to those willing to except it.

Here is the challenge:

1) Pick a book from the New Testament

2) Read it in one or two sittings

3) Make a note of every time to you come across something that tells you about God

and then...

4) Ask yourself, "Now that I know this about God, how does my life need to change?"

If you wanted to extend the challenge, repeat the four steps by picking a different book at step 1. This challenge will not be boring. If taken seriously, I can promise it will be life changing.
