Tuning forks…

Being a musician, I am familiar with the tools and the gadgets that help an orchestra to be in tune. This quote from A.W. Tozer is something to which I can easily relate…so I thought I’d share.

From The Pursuit of God by A. W. Tozer :


“Has it ever occurred to you that one hundred pianos all tuned

to the same fork are automatically tuned to each other?

They are of one accord by being tuned, not to each other,

but to another standard to which each one must individually bow.

So one hundred worshippers met together, each one looking

away to Christ, are in heart nearer to each other than

they could possibly be were they to become ‘unity’

conscious and turn their eyes away from God to strive for closer fellowship.”

 

WOW! I love that quote!

If we all have our eyes upon Jesus, and use Him as our standard for everything, then we will be in tune with those around us…our churches will be unified…

What a marvelous thought…
