Following Hard?

I'll admit that The Pursuit of God by A.W. Tozer was indeed on my required reading for my Bible Minor...and I basically skimmed it and wrote the paper...incidentally, I got an A! But, until I started coming across some of it lately...and my husband was reading didn't really strike me in my heart!  

How tragic that we in this dark day have had our seeking done for us by our teachers. Everything is made to center upon the initial act of "accepting" Christ (a term, incidentally, which is not found in the Bible) and we are not expected thereafter to crave any further revelation of God to our souls. We have been snared in the coils of a spurious logic which insists that if we have found Him, we need no more seek Him. In the midst of this great chill there are some, I rejoice to acknowledge, who will not be content with shallow logic. They will admit the force of the argument, and then turn away with tears to hunt some lonely place and pray. "Oh God, show me Thy glory." They want to taste, to touch with their hearts, to see with their inner eyes the wonder that is God.

If you want to read the rest...GO HERE!
