I’ve been thinking a lot about worship ever since last week when I shared Is Worship With Others An Idol?

Recently, I have been reading A.W. Tozer’s book, Pursuit of God and he mentions, *“The shallowness of our inner experience, the hollowness of our worship, and that servile imitation of the world which marks our promotional methods all testify that we, in this day, know God only imperfectly, and the peace of God, scarcely at all.”

Thanks for sharing! God bless
