Dealing with Resisters
An Excerpt from
A Real Christian
by A. W. Tozer
"A real Christian is an odd number. He...
~feels supreme love for the One whom he has never seen;
~ talks with familiarly every day to Someone he cannot see;
~expects to go to heaven on the virtue of Another;
~ empties himself in order to be full;
~ admits he is wrong so he can be declared right;
~ goes down in order to get up;
~ is strongest when he is weakest;
~ richest when he is poorest and happiest when he feels the worst.
~ He dies so he can live; forsakes in order to have;
~ gives away so he can keep; sees the invisible;
~ ears the inaudible' and knows that which passeth understanding."
