Just came across this quote from AW Tozer in Turnings by Guy Chevreau.
I believe that much of our religious unbelief is due to a wrong conception of and a wrong feeling for the scriptures of truth. A silent God suddenly began to speak in a book and when the book was finished lapsed into silence again forever. Now we read the book as a record of what God said when he was for a brief time in a speaking mood. With notions like that in our heads how can we believe? The facts are that God is not silent, has never been silent. He is by nature continuously articulate.
Guy goes on to say; "Because our heavenly Father loves us more than we will ever love him, he is forever caling and drawing us deeper in his love. This, more than any other call, is that which he is initiating, and to which he invites us to respond."
