To Be Christlike: Walk in the Spirit
By A. W. Tozer
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come. . .
He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine,
and shall shew it unto you. John 16:13, 14.
If we are going to reproduce Christ on earth and be
Christlike and show forth Christ, what is our greatest
We must have the Spirit of Christ!
If we are going to be the children of God, we must
have the Spirit of the Father to breathe in our hearts and
breathe through us. That is why we must have the Spirit
of God! That is why the church must have the Spirit of
The Christian church is called to live above her own
ability. She is called to live on a plane so high that no
human being can live like that of his own ability and
power. The humblest Christian is called to live a miracle,
a life that is a moral and spiritual life with such intensity
and such purity that no human being can do it---only
Jesus Christ can do it. He wants the Spirit of Christ to
come to His people---an invasion from above affecting
us mentally, morally and spiritually!
The Holy Spirit brings the wonderful mystery that is
God to us, and presents Him to the human spirit. The
Spirit is our Teacher, and if He does not teach us, we
never can know. He is our Illuminator, and if He does
not turn on the light, we never can see. He is the Healer
of our deaf ears, and if He does not touch our ears, we
never can hear!
The Holy Ghost bestows upon us a beatitude beyond
compare. He asks nothing except that we be willing to
listen, willing to obey!
Yours in Christ,
Paul N. F.
