A new book arrived on my doorstep yesterday; an order filler to reach the “Free Shipping” threshold at Amazon. But it will be anything but “filler” for my spiritual growth. The book is Living as a Christian – Teachings from First Peter by A.W. Tozer.
In his forward, James Snyder, offers a classic Tozer premise: “We must start with Christ, continue with Christ and, finally, end with Christ.”
It is in this all-encompassing walk with Christ where I frequently stumble. Sometimes I am hand-in-hand with him - but just as frequently, I can be found wandering off on my own. I am easily distracted and pulled away.
All of which is why I ordered Living as a Christian. It wasn’t free shipping I needed as much as Tozer’s - and Peter’s - guidance.
