Gospel-Reminder: Tozer on Real Faith

“Pseudo faith always arranges a way out to serve in case God fails it. Real faith knows only one way and gladly allows itself to be stripped of any second way or makeshift substitutes. For true faith, it is either God or total collapse. And not since Adam first stood up on the earth has God failed a single man or woman who trusted him.”

– A. W. Tozer, The Root of the Righteous, page 50.

 

Thanks again to Ray Ortlund for yet another great quote (full post here). If you ever need a good thought or quote to stimulate some thought (or prayer, or in this case for me, repentance), go check out Ray’s blog: Christ is Deeper Still.
