"OUR SOVEREIGN LORD"


                   OUR SOVEREIGN LORD

                            By A. W. Tozer

The most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands
 ... Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool.
                                                                 
-     Acts 7:48-49
    How can you be a Christian and not be aware of the
sovereignty of the God who has loved us to the death?

    To be sovereign.  God must be the absolute, infinite,
unqualified ruler in all realms in heaven and earth and
sea.  To  be  Lord  over  all  the  creation,  He  must  be
omnipotent.  He  must be  omniscient.  He  must be
omnipresent.

    With all that is within me, I believe that the crucified
and risen and glorified Savior, Jesus Christ, is the
sovereign Lord.

     He takes no orders from anyone.  He has no counselors
and no advisers.  He has no secretary to the throne.  He
knows in the one effortless act all that can be known and
He has already lived out our tomorrows and holds the
world in the palm of His hand.

     That is the Lord I serve!  I gladly own that I am His;
glory to God!  The Christ we know and serve is infinitely
beyond all men and all angels and all archangels; above
all principalities and powers and dominions, visible and
invisible - for He is the origin of them all!
