“Every man is a usurper and sits on a stolen throne” by A.W. Tozer

“‘What shall we do?’ is the deep heart cry of every man who suddenly realizes that he is a usurper and sits on a stolen throne. However painful, it is precisely this acute moral consternation that produces true repentance and makes a robust Christian after the penitent has been dethroned and has found forgiveness and peace through the gospel.”

–A.W. Tozer, The Knowledge of the Holy (New York: HarperCollins, 1961),  p. 30.
