Tozer on Faith and Mercy

From The Knowledge of the Holy, chapter 18

“We may plead for mercy for a lifetime in unbelief, and at the end of our days be still no more than sadly hopeful that we shall somewhere, sometime receive it.  This is to starve to death just outside the banquet hall in which we have been warmly invited.  Or we may, if we will, lay hold on the mercy of God by faith, enter the hall, and sit down with the bold and avid souls who will not allow diffidence and unbelief to keep them from the feast of fat thing things prepared for them.”
