I was reading more of A. W. Tozer’s book today, The Pursuit of Man. He makes a comment about the Holy Spirit which parallels Watchman Nee’s response to a question about the American church. He said he “was amazed at how much we can do without the Holy Spirit”. Tozer said that “our blunder (or shall we frankly say our sin) has been to neglect the doctrine of the Spirit to a point where we virtually deny Him His place in the Godhead. Our formal creed is sound; the breakdown is in our working creed. A doctrine has practical value only as far as it is prominent in our thoughts and makes a difference in our lives” (page 60).
How real is the Holy Spirit to you and do you know that He is at work in you? If He is merely something talked about at church, something is seriously wrong. Without His presence and work in us on a daily basis, we will pretend our Christianity and never experience divine power.
