When Tozer talks about “hearts fit to break”. That’s it.
If the Spirit is the oil, the sweet fragrance, then we are the jar that is broken. In our brokenness the Spirit is released and permeates the room with His lovely presence.
There is a section of a book by Watchman Nee that I think may be the most profound extra biblical writing I’ve ever read. It’s entitled, “Waste”. To be wasted for the Lord. To be poured out.
To be utterly consumed by the fire so only that which is from the Lord, returns to the Lord, which is the Holy Spirit of God.
So it is, we are melded into the fold of our Triune God. Brought into the depths and breathe and riches of his incomparable love and grace and we are utterly consumed by and in it, a burnt offering, a precious sacrifice that produces gold, silver, precious stone.
In the end the only work that will stand before God is God’s work. All wood, hay, stumble will be utterly consumed so that the manifest presence of his Son Jesus will be preeminent before all things, whether in heaven, on earth or below.
This is what the Father is after, the exultation of the Son, this is what the the Spirit preaches, the testimony of the Jesus. And as we, his people are wasted for Him, set upon the fire and consumed, all that is left is the radiant image of the glorious risen Lord Jesus Christ, forever and ever and ever.
And the angels sing holy, holy, holy is the Lord God almighty who was, who is and who is to come.
