A.W. Tozer is a renown pastor from the Christian Missionary Alliance denomination, and author of well known books such as The Pursuit of God, The Knowledge of the Holy, and others. His life and ministry have impacted millions of leaders, and even though He went to be with the Lord in 1963, his leadership insights still impact countless leaders today.
Here are some powerful leadership quotes from his writings:
To have found God and still to pursue Him is the soul’s paradox of love.
It is no small scandal to see God’s children starving while actually seated at the Father’s table.
Jesus calls us to his rest, and meekness is His method. The meek man cares not at all who is greater than he, for he has long ago decided that the esteem of the world is not worth the effort.
The man who would truly know God must give time to Him.
Justice is not something God has. Justice is something that God is.
We can never know who or what we are till we know at least something of what God is.
Unbelief is actually perverted faith, for it puts its faith not in the living God, but in dying men.
All things as they move toward God are beautiful, and they are ugly as they move away from Him.
We are saved to worship God. All that Christ has done in the past and all that He is doing now leads to this one end.
Holiness, as taught in the Scriptures, is not based upon knowledge on our part. Rather, it is based upon the resurrected Christ in-dwelling us and changing us into His likeness.
Without doubt, the mightiest thought the mind can entertain is the thought of God, and the weightiest word in any language is its word for God.
The Bible is a supernatural book and can be understood only by supernatural aid.
