The Church Must Have Power!
A. W. Tozer, in “Paths to Power,” wrote the following: “If we are to advance, the Church must have power; she must become formidable, a moral force to be reckoned with, if she would regain her lost position of spiritual ascendancy and make her message the revolutionizing, conquering thing it once was:
- We need spiritual energy of sufficient voltage to produce great saints once again.
- We need a spiritual unction (anointing) that will give a heavenly unction to our worship, that will make our meeting places sweet with the diving Presence.
- We need that divine afflatus (inspiration) which moves the heart and persuades the hearer to repent and believe in Christ. It is not eloquence; it is not logic; it is not argument. It is more penetrating than thought, more disconcerting than conscience, more convincing than reason. It is the subtle wonder that follows anointed preaching, a mysterious operation of spirit on spirit.” …Copied.
Someone has made the statement, “If we emphasize the method or the messenger, we may miss the tremendous power of the message. Oh, that we, as a church and individuals, may never lose sight of the importance of the message of the Gospel! …Bro. Phil.
I Corinthians 15:58.
A goose will sit faithfully on a dozen or so eggs and will not move for anybody or anything. But, after three or four eggs hatch, she becomes so preoccupied with them that she walks away from the remaining eggs. She does not persevere to the end.
In this passage, Paul reminds the Corinthians not to become so preoccupied with nonessentials that they are in danger of not remaining steadfast and immovable in the work of the Lord. You may have heard the old saying, “You don’t have the sense of a goose!” The problem is with too many of us–we do! …Copied.
