Tozer’s Definition of a Christian

A real Christian:
Feels supreme love for One whom he has never seen
Talks familiarly every day to Someone he cannot see
Expects to go to heaven on the virtue of Another
Empties himself in order to be full
Admits he is wrong so he can be declared right
Goes down in order to get up
Is strongest when he is weakest
Richest when he is poorest
Happiest when he feels worst
Dies so he can live
Forsakes in order to have
Gives away so he can keep
Sees the invisible, hears the inaudible, and knows that which passes knowledge.
