Mark and I recently enjoyed a conference at Cannon Beach for pastors and wives. What a refreshing and happy time for couples. Consider someone you love deeply; now imagine yourself coldly analyzing their character. No, this actually doesn’t work because we have happy and beautiful responses as we think of their attributes.
For sure the study of the attributes of God should be far from a dry academic pursuit. Rather, it should put passion into our souls, awe into our prayers, and tears into our eyes. Ponder on these two quotes from the Session One lesson in the back of our books—The Attributes of God by A.W. Tozer.
“Christianity at any given time is strong or weak depending upon her concept of God. And I insist upon this and I have said it many times, that the basic trouble with the Church today is her unworthy conception of God.”
“It is vitally important that we think soundly about God. Since He is the foundation of all our religious beliefs, it follows that if we err in our ideas of God, we will go astray on everything else.”
In just one week we will begin our Ladies Bible Study again on Thursday mornings at 9:30 in the Fireside room. Won’t you plan to join us as we strengthen the foundation of all we believe by studying the attributes of God? If you don’t already have a book, you can pick one up in the foyer at church this Sunday. Plan to read through Session One in the back of the book before next Thursday.
