A Real Christian...

...Is An Odd Number, Anyway.

By A. W. Tozer


He feels supreme love
for One whom he has never seen;

Talks familiarly everyday
to someone he cannot see;

Expects to go to heaven
on the virtue of another;

Empties himself
in order to be full; 

Admits he is wrong
so he can be declared right; 

Goes down
in order to get up;

Is strongest
when he is weakest; 

Richest 
when he is poorest;

Happiest 
when he feels the worst.

He dies
so he can live;

Forsakes
in order to have; 

Gives away
so he can keep;

Sees the invisible;

Hears the inaudible;

And knows that which passeth knowledge.

Give you something to think about, doesn't it?
