Tozer on Work and Worship

"It was A. W. Tozer who reminded us that we are here to be worshipers first and workers only second. We take a convert and immediately make a worker out of that person. God never meant it to be so. God meant that a convert should learn to be a worshiper, and after that he or she can learn to be a worker. The work done by a worshiper will have eternity in it."

-James O. Abrahamson, Put Your Best Foot Forward: How to Minister from Your Strength, Nashville: Abington Press, 1994. (Chapter 3, "The Reaching-Up (Worship-Centered) Church")


Have you ever been too busy to worship? Is it possible to work so hard for the Lord, that we are hindered in responding to his love and grace? 

Have a great week!
