Some guys and myself are reading A.W. Tozer’s The Pursuit of God. One thing notable about most Christian “classics” is that they seem as if they were written today–instead of over 50, 100 or 500 years ago. Of course, the language may give clues to the age of a one of these books, but the Christian journey of faith is something that we share closely with our brothers and sisters who have lived far ahead of us.
Here is one thought I would love to discuss. God is a person.
We have almost forgotten that God is a Person and, as such, can be cultivated as any person can. It is inherent on personality to be able to know other personalities, but full knowledge of one personality by another cannot be achieved in one encounter.
Tozer reminds us that God can be known. In my daily life, it seems easier to figure things out on my own rather than get to know the person of Jesus who can figure things out with me. Or, even better he can simply be with me. After all, he is a person.
How does God being a person change how you live your normal life throughout the day?
