A.W. Tozer is a renown pastor from the Christian Missionary Alliance denomination, and author of well known books such as The Pursuit of God, The Knowledge of the Holy, and others. His life and ministry have impacted millions of leaders, and even though He went to be with the Lord in 1963, his leadership insights still impact countless leaders today.
Here are some powerful leadership quotes from his writings:
The reason why many are still troubled, still seeking, still making little forward progress is because they haven’t yet come to the end of themselves. We’re still trying to give orders, and interfering with God’s work within us.
I want the presence of God Himself, or I don’t want anything at all to do with religion. I want all that God has or I don’t want any.
One hundred religious persons knit into a unity by careful organization do not constitute a church any more than eleven dead men make a football team.
O God, I have tasted Thy goodness, and it has both satisfied me and made me thirsty for more.
We need never shout across the spaces to an absent God. He is nearer than our own soul.
The world is perishing for lack of the knowledge of God and the Church is famishing for want of His Presence.
The heart of the world is breaking under this load of pride and pretense.
However a man may protest, the proof is in the choices he makes day after day throughout his life.
Much of our difficulty as Christians stems from our unwillingness to take God as He is and adjust our lives accordingly.
