I received this excerpt from my Son, Aaron, this morning. What a joy to receive such correspondence from your own kids.
Thanks Buddy! 🙂
Here is a quote from Tozer which I thoroughly enjoyed, I believe it is from Tozer’s “Sharpening the Axe” devotional. Still, I’m not really sure.
I have never subscribed to the doctrine that we Christians should live in an intellectual vacuum, refusing to hear what the world has to say. A faith that must be “protected” is no faith at all. If I can retain my faith in Christ only by closing my mind against every criticism, I give proof positive that I am not well convinced of the soundness of my position. The soul that has had a saving encounter with God is sure beyond the possibility of a doubt. His happy testimony will be, “To the LORD I cry aloud, and he answers me from his holy hill. I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the LORD sustains me. I will not fear the tens of thousands drawn up against me on every side” (Psalm 3:4-6). Such a man will not need to shield himself from the classics nor from comparative religions or philosophy or psychology or science. The Spirit bears witness to Christ deep within his consciousness. His heart knows, though his reason my not yet have caught up with his heart.
Thank you Lord for Your wisdom and goodness and grace and love and joy and peace and and and and and…
