Two A.W.s, Two Different Books, One Glorious Truth

photo-39Two men with the beginning initials of A and W in two different books about the attributes of God bring out the same beautiful truth in two different, but strikingly wonderful, ways.

A.W. Pink:

The whole of my life stood open to His view from the beginning. He foresaw my every fall, my every sin, my every backsliding; yet, nevertheless, fixed His heart upon me. Oh, how the realization of this should bow me in wonder and worship before Him! (Taken from The Attributes of God, p. 26).

A.W. Tozer:

To us who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope that is set before us in the gospel, how unutterably sweet is the knowledge that our Heavenly Father knows us completely. No talebearer can inform on us, no enemy can make an accusation stick; no forgotten skeleton can come tumbling out of some bidden closet to abash us and expose our past; no unsuspected weakness in our characters can come to light to turn God away from us, since He knew us utterly before we knew Him and called us to Himself in the full knowledge of everything that was against us. (Taken from The Knowledge of the Holy, ch. 10).

Dear Christian, God knows more about your sin than even you do and He saved you nonetheless. You’re secure.
