I admired how A.W Tozer phrases on having a genuine encounter with God. Truly that's what make our Christian walk real and not religious. We can't live out of others' experience with God, and say we know this and that. We need to live out of our encounters with God and in life itself testifies "My God is real"
"Is it not true that for most of us who call ourselves Christians there is no real experience? We have substituted theological ideas for an arresting encounter, we are full of religious notions, but our great weakness is that of our hearts there is no one there. Whatever else it embrace , true Christian experience must always include a genuine encounter with God.Without this, religion is but a shadow, a reflection of reality, a cheap copy of an original once enjoyed by someone else whom we have heard.- A.W. Tozer
