God--Worthy of Reverence

A.W. Tozer, in his book Men Who Met God, said:
Mankind has succeeded quite well in reducing God to a pitiful nothing! The God of the modern context is no God at all. He is simply a glorified chairman of the board, a kind of big businessman dealing in souls. The God portrayed in much of our church life today commands very little respect. We must get back to the Bible and to the ministration of God's Spirit to regain a high and holy concept of God. Oh, this awesome, terrible God, the dread of Isaac! This God who made Isaiah cry out, "I am undone!" This God who drove Daniel to his knees in honor and respect. To know the Creator and the God of all the universe is to revere Him. It is to bow down before Him in wonder and awesome fear.


Psalm 95:6 says:
O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.

Amen, my brother. At Rockport's conference last week I heard a pretty good series of messages from Charles Leiter on the worthiness of God. You can listen to them at

We miss you, brother. Pray God is leading and guiding for His glory.
