What Is It To Accept Jesus?

This is the very first time I was introduce to A. W. Tozer. I have appreciated him ever since. So much so, I own his entire collection of works. Though I don’t agree with everything he believes (minor doctrine), he is still one my heroes of the faith.

This sermon, is him preaching at a Pittsburgh Convention, I believe in the late 50’s, early 60’s. Dr. Tozer just blew me away! It seems to me, they (the audience) was expecting one thing from him, but received the truth instead!

Therefore, brethren, be all the more diligent to make certain about His calling and choosing you; for as long as you practice these things, you will never stumble; 11 for in this way the entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be abundantly supplied to you. ~2 Peter 1:10–11 [Emphasis Mine]


This from the Getty’s, Magnificent, Marvelous, Matchless love!

How great, how sure;
His love endures forevermore.
Magnificent, marvelous, matchless love

…and that’s a beautiful thing!

  • I read that Tozer was fond of saying, “I refuse to allow any man to put his glasses on me and force me to see everything in his light.”

    I read this in an article written about him… “He was not a perfect man; He had his faults and “warts,” possessed a disposition that caused him grief and heartache. Although never nasty or venomous, at times he had to apologize to those he inadvertently hurt when he spontaneously popped their balloons of pretense, pomposity and posturing.”

    Hailing from a tiny farming community in western Pennsylvania, his conversion was as a teenager in Akron, Ohio. While on his way home from work at a tire company, he overheard a street preacher say: “If you don’t know how to be saved… just call on God.” Upon returning home, he climbed into the attic and heeded the preachers advice.

    Aiden Wilson Tozer (April 21, 1897 – May 12, 1963) On Sunday, May 12, 1963, went to be with the Lord. But his work lives on!
