Great Quotes from A.W. Tozer (“Accepting” or “Receiving”?)

“The Bible knows absolutely nothing about passive reception, for the word receive is not passive— it is active. We make the word receive into accept. Everyone goes around asking, “Will you accept Jesus? Will you accept Him?” This makes a brush salesman out of Jesus Christ, as though He meekly stands waiting to know whether we will patronize Him or not. Although we desperately need what he proffers, we are sovereignly deciding whether we will receive Him or not.”

Great Quotes from A.W. Tozer (Surrender)

“I wonder how many Christians in our day have truly and completely abandoned themselves to Jesus Christ as their Lord. We are very busy telling people to ‘accept Christ’ — and that seems to be the only word we are using. We arrange a painless acceptance.”
