Passion Week – Saturday

This is a re-post of the Passion series from last year. Isaiah 55:1-3: Come, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat!

A Prayer from Tozer

This is the prayer at the end of chapter one of A.W. Tozer’s book, “The Pursuit of God.”  If I read nothing else from this book, this prayer would have been enough: O God, I have tasted Thy goodness, and it has both satisfied me and made me thirsty for more.  I am painfully conscious…
