We have an information overload today of not just secular information but also Christian. You can download and watch any preacher and any church instantly. I grew up in a time where there were no cassettes, CDs, MP3s and podcasts. Today, you can have the latest sermon minutes after the final amen. There is nothing wrong with that unless it is REPLACING INSTEAD OF ENHANCING.
There are a number of books by AW Tozer that have affected my life. One of those is “THE SET THE SAIL”
The whole thesis of the book is to make sure you SAIL AND DON’T DRIFT.
Here is what Tozer says from the beginning…
“Sail, Don’t Drift : I find the greatest thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving. To reach the port of heaven, we must sail sometimes with the wind, and sometimes against it, but we sail, and not drift, nor live at anchor.”
Then Tozer speaks a foreign language to us today.
It is a language that we ministers don’t hear and don’t practice enough , if not at all.
Read his words….they are profound, they are simple and they are convicting. Even at the end Tozer turns doctor and tells you how to get rid of ulcers.
