A. W. Tozer: “Refuse to be average”

A.W. Tozer was a pastor, editor, and author who would often warn the Church compromising with “worldly” concerns. His sermons, books, and magazine articles taught about the strength of God, the need for prayer, and the teachings of Christ. Here are my top 10 quotes from A. W. Tozer:

  • “I can safely say, on the authority of all that is revealed in the Word of God, that any man or woman on this earth who is bored and turned off by worship is not ready for heaven.”
  • “Any faith that must be supported by the evidence of the senses is not real faith.”
  • “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.”
  • “Perhaps it takes a purer faith to praise God for unrealized blessings than for those we once enjoyed or those we enjoy now.”
  • “God never hurries. There are no deadlines against which he must work. Only to know this is to quiet our spirits and relax our nerves.”
  • “I want the presence of God Himself, or I don’t want anything at all to do with religion… I want all that God has or I don’t want any.”
  • “One hundred religious persons knit into a unity by careful organization do not constitute a church any more than eleven dead men make a football team.”
  • “Faith is the gaze of a soul upon a saving God.”
  • “An infinite God can give all of Himself to each of His children. He does not distribute Himself that each may have a part, but to each one He gives all of Himself as fully as if there were no others.”
  • “Refuse to be average. Let your heart soar as high as it will.”
