“Did you ever stop to think that God is going to be as pleased to have you with Him in Heaven as you are to be there?”
A.W. Tozer, The Attributes of God: A Journey Into the Father's Heart
“We get the odd notion that God is showing mercy because Jesus died. No. Jesus died because God is showing mercy.”

“The author squares man's depravity with still being made in the image of God with this word picture. A vase that has held beautiful roses though now broken, will nevertheless hold something of the fragrance it once contained.”
A.W. Tozer, The Attributes of God: A Journey Into the Father's Heart
“When Jesus died on the cross the mercy of God did not become any greater. It could not become any greater, for it was already infinite. We get the odd notion that God is showing mercy because Jesus died. No--Jesus died because God is showing mercy. It was the mercy of God that gave us Calvary, not Calvary that gave us mercy. If God had not been merciful there would have been no incarnation, no babe in the manger, no man on a cross and no open tomb.”

“What God made, God loves, because it's inconceivable that God should make anything that He didn't love.”
A.W. Tozer, The Attributes of God: A Journey Into the Father's Heart
“Love casts out fear, for when we know we are loved, we are not afraid. Whoever has God's perfect love, fear is gone out of the universe for him.”

“You know, it’s awfully hard to get a Christian scared. It’s hard to get him panicked if he really believes in God. If he’s just a church member, you can get him panicked. But if he really believes in God it’s very difficult to do it.”
A.W. Tozer, The Attributes of God Volume 1: A Journey into the Father's Heart
“When God justifies a sinner, everything in God is on the sinner's side. All the attributes of God are on the sinner's side. It isn't that mercy is pleading for the sinner and justice is trying to beat him to death. All of God does all that God does.”

“Contemporaries relate that hearing Martin Luther pray was "an experience in theology". They said the reformer began praying with such humility that he could be pitied, only to proceed with such boldness before God that the human hearer would fear for him.”
A.W. Tozer, The Attributes of God: A Journey Into the Father's Heart
“But when, through the open door of the cross and the name and power of Jesus Christ, I commend myself to the Father's heart, then God cancels all my past, accepts all my present, swears His holy name for my future and the love of God take me over. Then fear goes out of my heart, because love has come in.”

“The Bible is a whole series of highways, all leading toward God. And when the text has been illuminated and the believer of the text knows that God is the end toward which he is moving, then that man has real faith.”
A.W. Tozer, The Attributes of God: A Journey Into the Father's Heart
“Oh Dios, el tiempo corre, volando como un pájaro asustado. El pájaro del tiempo está volando y tiene poco camino para revolotear. El vino de la vida se está yendo gota a gota, y las hojas de la vida están cayendo una a una. Pronto, ante el Inefable todo hombre debe aparecer para rendir cuentas por los hechos realizados en el cuerpo. Oh, Padre, mantén en nosotros un sentido de santidad para que no podamos pecar y justificarlo, sino que el arrepentimiento sea profundo en nuestras vidas. Te lo pedimos en el nombre de Cristo. Amén.”

“Grace is that in God which brings into favor one justly in disfavor.”

“He abhorred not the virgin’s womb.” The writer thought about this and said, “Wait a minute here. The womb of the creature? How could the everlasting, eternal, infinite God, whom space cannot contain, confine Himself inside one of His creatures? Wouldn’t it be a humiliation?” Then he smiled and said, “No, He abhorred not the virgin’s womb,”

“La Iglesia saldrá de su estancamiento cuando nos demos cuenta de que la salvación no es solo una lámpara, que no es solo una póliza de seguro contra el infierno, sino una puerta hacia Dios y que Dios es todo lo que tendremos y podremos desear.”
A.W. Tozer, Los atributos de Dios - vol. 1 (Incluye guia de estudio): Un viaje al corazon del Padre
“With our Bible open before us and our knees bent, all alone in humility and penitence, let us cry, “Only God, only God and God alone! Take the world but give me Jesus!” Will you do that? We need it in the Church. We all need it. May God grant it in Jesus Christ our Lord.”
A.W. Tozer, The Attributes of God Volume 1: A Journey into the Father's Heart
“And I believe I know who it is. I believe it is the eternal Father, “strong to save, whose power rules the restless wave.” I believe it is the Trinity, our Father who art in heaven and Jesus Christ His only Son our Lord. God is having a good time in His role. And so let us not think anymore of God as being heavy-browed and gloomy. I repeat that when God made the heaven and earth they sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy. There wasn’t a funeral at the creation of the world; there was an anthem. All creation sang.”
A.W. Tozer, The Attributes of God Volume 1: A Journey into the Father's Heart
“Christianity at any given time is strong or weak depending upon her concept of God. And I insist upon this and I have said it many times, that the basic trouble with the Church today is her unworthy conception of God.”

“Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us” (Revelation 5:9)—that’s the theme of the new song. The theme of the new song isn’t “I am”; it’s “Thou art.” Notice the difference! When you look at the old hymnody of Wesley, Montgomery and Watts, it was “Thou art, O God, Thou art.” But when you look at the modern hymns, it is “I am, I am, I am.” It makes me sick to my stomach. Occasionally a good hymn with testimonies is all right, but we’ve overdone it. The song of the ransomed is going to be “Thou art worthy, O God.”

“If you want to examine a very small amount of matter, you put it under a microscope and magnify it to make it look bigger than it is. But it is impossible to make God look bigger than He is. When we say “magnify the Lord,” we mean try to see God somewhere near as big as He is. This is what I want to do. This is what, by His help, I have dedicated myself to do.”

“God wants to please you. He is pleased when you are His child, when you’re surrendered, when your will is His will and His will is yours, when you are not in rebellion and not seeking your own will. God loves to please His people.”
A.W. Tozer, The Attributes of God Volume 1: A Journey into the Father's Heart
“Christianity is a gateway into God. And then when you get into God, “with Christ in God,” then you’re on a journey into infinity, into infinitude. There is no limit and no place to stop. There isn’t just one work of grace, or a second work or a third work, and then that’s it. There are numberless experiences and spiritual epochs and crises that can take place in your life while you are journeying out into the heart of God in Christ. God is infinite! That’s the hardest thought I will ask you to grasp.”
