In every Christian's Heart, there is a cross and a throne, and the Christian is on the throne till he puts himself on the cross... - Aiden Wilson Tozer Quotes

Quote:In every Christian's Heart, there is a cross and a throne, and the Christian is on the throne till he puts himself on the cross; if he refuses the cross, he remains on the throne. Perhaps this is at the bottom of the backsliding and worldliness among Gospel believers today. We want to be saved, but we insist that Christ do all the dying. No cross for us, no dethronement, no dying. We remain king within the little kingdom of man's soul and wear our tinsel crown with all the pride of a caesar; but we doom ourselves to shadows and weakness and spiritual sterility. - Aiden Wilson Tozer Quotes
