Tozer admits that not everything we see happening among Christians glorifies God. “The question is not what you think of Christianity but what you think of Christ and what you are going to do about Him.” p 27
Our hope of living a life pleasing to God is not found in human might. “If we rest upon our own strength, we fail. However, there is strength in Jesus Christ that makes the Christian journey successful.” p 35
In our world today, independence and self-reliance are highly esteemed. However, “…God wants to teach us through trials and temptations that self-trust is dangerous and unreliable.” p 107
He warns that “we should never get too comfortable in this life.” Because, “If your journey is not cluttered with difficulties and hardships and burdens, you just might be on the wrong path.” pp 179- 180
May I remember that “it is trouble that enables God to get the glory.” p 206
