Faith and Commitment

Faith is a journey, not a destination.

–A.W. Tozer

Millions of professed believers talk as if He were real and act as if He were not.

–A.W. Tozer

Faith now means no more than passive moral acquiescence in the Word of God and the cross of Jesus. To exercise it we have only to rest on one knee and nod our heads in agreement with the instructions of a personal worker intent upon saving our soul. The general effect is much the same as that which men feel after a visit to a good and wise doctor. They come back from such a visit feeling extra good, withal smiling just a little sheepishly to think how many fears they have entertained about their health when actually there was nothing wrong with them. They just needed a rest.

–A.W. Tozer

(I can’t help but think of Joel Osteen in the quote above.)

Faith doesn’t begin and end with a decision. Tozer was writing these things in the 1950’s and these things have continued to build to this day.
