an everyday sacrament

As I close the last chapter on Tozer’s book, The Pursuit of God, I am struck yet again and how the Lord truly brings books, people, songs etc into my life to encourage and move me along close to Him. I’ve learned and been convicted of much in this book, but primarily I’ve learned that I can’t just be convicted…I have to move out of that conviction. I have to push through and press on.

This is what I know the Pursuit of God is:
a total conformity to Him
not a pious idealism, but an integral part of opening up every act of my life
a willing surrender
an aggressive faith
getting God into focus
taking God at His word
an adoration – not an explanation
a response to His overtures
an answer to the inward longing
a worshiping heart
an entrance into the Holy of Holies
a constant exaggeration of the abundance of His love for us
pushing through into His presence
a sweet and mysterious mingling
a heart where He reigns unchallenged
surrender
seeking God-alone (not God-and)
a constant pursuit
