Lent Day 18 – True Cultivation

Insights on From the Grave: A 40-Day Lent Devotional by A.W. Tozer

by Karyn Custer-Jankowski – Director of Children’s Ministries / Valpo FUMC

CULTIVATION implies PROCESS. Something slow and steady. Something for which hard work is made worthy.

Hmmmmm….. doesn’t sound like something anyone would want to do in these days and times! Everything is SO SPEEDY, SO FAST! Which is exactly the author’s point in this reading!

Tozer is stating the obvious that nowadays, if it isn’t fast, flashy, peppy, and attention-getting, we don’t want it! But, cultivating a relationship with God isn’t ANY of those things! Tozer tells us that he can’t know what God will do on a worldwide scale to change this drive-through mentality of Christianity, BUT he can tell us that by working to become more holy, more Godly in nature, and by looking to the Bible in faithfulness, trust, obedience and humility, as individuals, with time and process, we will grow in our faith and in our relationship with God.
