How tame is our God? Consider this quote from AW Tozer:
The God of the modern evangelical rarely astonishes anybody. He manages to stay pretty much within the constitution. Never breaks our bylaws. He’s a very well-behaved God and very denominational and very much one of us, and we ask Him to help us when we’re in trouble and look to Him to watch over us when we’re asleep. The God of the modern evangelical isn’t a God I could have much respect for. But when the Holy Ghost show us God as He is, we admire Him to the point of wonder and delight. (Gems from Tozer)
- How domesticated is the God we worship?
- Do we confine him within our evangelical boxes?
- Do we ask him to color within the lines we create for him?
- Are our expectations of him limited by a narrow theology?
Or is he allowed to surprise and astonish us?
