Choices….. for Seekers
We( Our study group) have contemplated much this past year about the deeper life from David Hazard's teachings from St John of the Cross. And now I want to share what has also blessed me with God’s guidance through the words of A.W. Tozer, in regards to the deeper life. Words I find challenging and thought provoking.
Oh, Holy spirit…
Oh Fire! That burns so intimately
and tenderly penetrates the
fibre and core of my soul…
Cleanse me, burn in me, with Your passion for Christ!
St John of the Cross.
There are five vows I have in mind which we do well to make and keep.
1.Deal thoroughly with sin
2. Never own anything- get rid of the sense o possessing.
3. Never defend yourself.
4. Never pass anything on about anybody else that will hurt him.
5. Never accept any glory.
Remember these five vows are not something you write in the back of your Bible and forget. They have to be written in your own blood. Make your thoughts a clean sanctuary.
To God our thoughts are things. Our thoughts are the decorations inside the sanctuary where we live. Consider your thoughts as part of you.
Recognize the enemies thoughts and cast them down for the evil they are and fix your thoughts on the Lord Jesus Christ as you bring every thought captive, by the power of God, to the obedience of Jesus Christ. See yourselves as clean and purified by the blood of Jesus Christ the sacrifice Lamb.
I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, (I am learning this amazing secret) Philippians 4:12
