The Peril of the Perfunctory

This is a poignant quote from A.W. Tozer’s Seven Perils of the Preacher:

“Another danger is that he may develop a perfunctory spirit in the performance of the work of the Lord. Familiarity may breed contempt even at the very altar of God. How frightful a thing it is for the preacher when he becomes accustomed to his work, when the sense of wonder departs, when he gets used to the unusual, when he loses his solemn fear in the presence of the High and Holy one; when, to put it bluntly, he gets a little bored with God and heavenly things.”

Brothers and Sisters, may we never lose the wonder.
