I wanted to put in my own words what I learnt from him, but no, the way he put it is amazing! Here’s A. W. Tozer:

That our character is not solid but fluid is not in itself a disturbing thought. Indeed, the man who knows himself may take great comfort in the realization that he is not fixed in his present state, that he may cease to be what he is ashamed that he has ever been and go on to be “remolded nearer to the heart’s desire.”

The perturbing thought is not that we are becoming, but what we are becoming; not that we are moving, but toward what we are moving. For it is not in human nature to move on a horizontal plane; we are either ascending or descending, mounting up or sinking down.


A. W. Tozer, God Tells The Man Who Cares (Akola, Maharashtra: Alliance Publications : India, 1973), p. 156.
