Wisdom from Tozer - You need to go to Church!

"Once he encountered a man who did not believe in going to church each week to hear the Word of God preached. The man felt that once people were converted, they should immediately turn their full attention to winning others. 'A farmer,' the man argued, 'candles his eggs once, not every week. As soon as the eggs have been candled, he crates them and ships them off to market.'
"Tozer found a serious flaw in the man's argument. 'Christ did not say to Peter, "Candle my eggs," He said, "Feed my sheep." Christians are not eggs to be candled but sheep to be fed. Feeding sheep is not something you do once for all. It is a loving act you repeat regularly as long as the sheep live.'"
