Our churches, and our personal lives, begin to crumble when we mistakenly think that we can substitute activity for quiet time spent in God's Word.
"Right now we are in an age of religious complexity. The simplicity which is in Christ is rarely found among us. In its stead are programs, methods, organizations and a world of nervous activities which occupy time and attention but can never satisfy the longing of the heart. The shallowness of our inner experience, the hollowness of our worship, and the servile imitations 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. ~A. W. Tozer

God bless America and thank You, Lord, for Your perfect, infallible, inspired Word!
