 FAITH MUST BE RESTORED -Tozer

FAITH MUST BE RESTORED
The Bible tells about man's being alienated from and an enemy to God. Should this sound harsh or extreme you have only to imagine your closest friend coming to you and stating in cold seriousness that he no longer has any confidence in you. "I do not trust you. I have lost confidence in your character. I am forced to suspect every move you make" - such a declaration would instantly alienate friends by destroying the foundation upon which every friendship is built. Until your former friend's opinion of you had been reversed there could be no further communion. People do not go boldly to God and profess that they have no confidence in Him and they usually do not witness publicly to their low view of God. The frightful thing, however, is that people everywhere act out their unbelief with a consistency that is more convincing than words. Christianity provides a way back from this place of unbelief and alienation: "He that cometh to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him." God took the wrong upon Himself in order that the one who committed the wrong might be saved!

Prayer
Lord, purge me from the unbelief that sometimes seperates me from you. Keep me in a right relationship with you.

Scripture
Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief.
— Hebrews 3:12

Good article.

We reject Christ by rejecting God's grace and prefering and accepting our sin.

Thank God for His grace!

Jesus was punished in our place. That sounds trite, almost as if He did nothing.

We still don't realise the anguish it cost God to that to His own Son. His only Son.

We don't weep at the fact that Jesus took our place in hell when He went to the cross.

God has enemies. There are those who hate Him. they fight Him, wether they know it or not.

Let's not be one of them. Fear God. Keep His commandments, for this is man's all. Ecclesiates 12v13. God bless.
