Quote from Tommy Tenney

October 22, 2005

I finished reading Finding Favour with the King by Tommy Tenney and it was a worthwhile read, despite my previous moanings about it.

Two quotes which I particularly liked were, “Once again, as I’ve said in many churches and meetings around the world, God has this incredible idea that church is about Him. Our view tends to be terribly different. We often fashion and orchestrate everything in our meetings to please ourselves, so by our actions we show that we believe church is really about us.” (pg. 94).

And again, “How long has it been since God left a worship encounter with you exclaiming, ‘I’m full’? We are the ones who often want to leave ‘blessed’! Interestingly, God thinks church is to bless Him!” (pg. 164).
