Tozer, Worship, and Work

"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."

-from James O. Abrahamson's *Put Your Best Foot Forward: How to Minister from
Your Strength,* 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,
