The Conversation Between God And Man

“To have found God and still to pursue Him is the soul’s paradox of love, scorned indeed by the too-easily-satisfied religionists, but justified in happy experience by the children of the burning heart.”
A. W. Tozer – Pursuit of God

The intercourse between God and the soul is known to us in conscious personal awareness.

This conversation is personal, and it is conscious.

It does not come through the body of believers.

To the body of believers, the congregation, it is known through the individuals that compose the congregation.

This intercourse does not stay below the threshold of consciousness and work there unknown to the soul.

It comes within the field of awareness where the person can know it as he or she knows any other fact or experience.

We are made the image of God; we are in little, except our sins, what God is in large.

And we have within us the capacity to know Him.

“The moment the Spirit has quickened us to life in regeneration our whole being senses its kinship to God and leaps up in joyous recognition.”
A. W. Tozer – Pursuit of God

This is the heavenly birth.

Without it we cannot see the Kingdom of God.

But it is not the end, just the inception.

Now begins the glorious pursuit, the heart’s happy exploration of the infinite riches of the Godhead.

We come to acknowledge God, when we are acknowledged by Him and commence our intercourse with Him.

We exist to communicate with God, and to be in conversation with Him.

This is where we begin.

But where we stop, no one has yet discovered.

For in the awful and mysterious depths of the triune God there is neither limit nor end.
