Tozer: What is Faith?

“[Faith] is summed up for us in the Hebrew epistle when we are instructed to run life’s race ‘looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith.’ From all this we learn that faith is not a once-done act, but a continuous gaze of the heart at the Triune God.  Believing, then, is directing the hearts attention to Jesus.  It is lifting the mind to ‘behold the Lamb of God,’ and never ceasing that beholding for the rest of our lives.”

– Tozer, The Pursuit of God (1961: Marshall, Morgan and Scott, Ltd.), p. 90
