A short passage from A.W. Tozer’s book “The Pursuit of God”

“The instant cure of most of our religious ills would be to enter the Presence in spiritual experience, to become suddenly aware that we are in God and that God is in us. This would lift us out of our pitiful narrowness and cause our hearts to be enlarged. This would burn away the impurities from our lives as the bugs and fungi were burned away by the fire that dwelt in the bush.

What a broad world to roam in, what a sea to swim in is this God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. He is ETERNAL, which means that He antedates time and is wholly independent of it. Time began in Him and will end in Him. To it He pays no tribute and from it He suffers no change. He is IMMUTABLE, which means that He has never changed and can never change in any smallest measure. To change, He would need to go from better to worse or from worse to better. He cannot do either. For being perfect He cannot become more perfect, and if He were to become less perfect, He would be less than God. He is OMNISCIENT, which means that He knows in one free and effortless act all matter, all spirit, all relationships, all event. He has no past and He has no future. He is, and none of the limiting and qualifying terms used of creatures can apply to Him. LOVE and Mercy and RIGHTEOUSNESS are His, and HOLINESS  so ineffable that no comparison or figures will avail to express it. Only fire can give even a remote conception of it.

In fire  He appeared in the burning bush; in the pillar of fire He dwelt through all the long wilderness journey. The fire that glowed between the wings of the Cherubim in the holy place was called ‘Shekinah’ the Presence, through the years of Israel’s glory, and when the Old had given place to the New, He came at Pentecost as a fiery flame and rested upon each disciple”.

For me personally, this explains the pure and complete relationship with God. You cannot compare his love with that of human because its unconditional and eternal. It does not wait for a pay back or do me I do you, it’s just pure and awesome. I really thank God for this relationship with Him. I thank Jesus Christ for His mercies and for the grace He has given to us all.

Stay blessed
