This clarifying thought comes from Aiden Wilson Tozer in his book ‘The Knowledge of the Holy’
“God’s attributes are not isolated traits of His character but facets of His unitary being. They are not things-in-themselves; they are, rather, thoughts by which we think of God, aspects of a perfect whole, names given to whatever we know to be true of the Godhead.”
I have taken the long way going through this book…I’m two-thirds of the way through and there have been few or even none…other than the Bible… books that have always offered me a hand to a place of meditation on God in His perfect holiness and His grace and mercy to condescend to man. I hope any and all would take this book up and read it, savor it, and worship God as you eat of its richness.
