Paul N. F. (16 Dec 2010)


            By A. W. Tozier


          Do not let any part of your bodies become tools of
          wickedness, to be used for sinning; but give yourselves
          completely to God--every part of you--for you are back
          from death and you want to be tools in the hands of God,
          to be used for his good purposes.        Romans 6:13

              I know there are people who hear me preach regularly,
          who will never consider changing their way of living.
          They will go "underground" before they will do that!

              Our situation is not an isolated case. There are millions
          of men  and  women  with  an  understanding  of  the
          revelation of God in Jesus Christ, who are still not willing
          to receive and commit themselves to Him whom the very
          angels and stars and rivers receive. They hesitate and they
          delay because they know God is asking the abdication of
          their own selfish little kingdom and interests.

              This is the tragedy of mankind, my brethren! We have
          rejected Him from our lives because we must have our
          own way. But until Jesus Christ is sincerely received,
          there  can  be  no  knowledge  of  salvation,  nor  any
          understanding of the things of God.

              The little, selfish, sinful man rejects the Son of God.
          While he is still enumerating the things he deserves, the
          Son of God stands outside.

            My brethren. I repeat: this is the great tragedy of

          Yours in Christ,
          Paul N. F.
