Journey to the Cross: The Third Step
A.W. Tozer once wrote, "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 Mansoul, and wear our tinsel crowns with all the pride of a Caesar; but we doom ourselves to shadows and weakness and spiritual sterility. So subtle is the self-life that scarcely anyone is conscious of its presence. Because man is born a rebel, he is often unaware that he is one!"
