Mystery of the Holy Spirit by AW Tozer
Worship is to feel in your heart and express in some appropriate manner a humbling but delightful sense of admiring awe, astonished wonder, and overpowering love in the presence of that most ancient Mystery, that Majesty which philosophers call the First Cause, but which we call Our Father in Heaven. The Father promised the Spirit as a gift to His children. I do not know if this is right or not, but I think maybe God had in mind the love people have for their children. He did say, “If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him. In making the Spirit the promise of the Father, I wonder if He did not want to show that you do not have to be afraid of the Holy Spirit. But if you could remember, He is the Father’s promise, given to us as the promised gift. Just as a man promises his son a bicycle for Christmas, and the boy remembers and comes back and reminds the father. Nobody is ever afraid of a promise of a father who loves him.
