If God isn’t like
Jesus Christ,
He ought to be.

Faith is seeing

369874-bigthumbnail

Faith is not something you do. Faith is seeing. It’s discovering the eternal character of God as Father, Son and Spirit. It’s seeing that this love of Father, Son and Spirit has been directed toward you from all eternity.

–Baxter Kruger

Terrifying and Tender

Our world is . . . longing
to see people whose
God is big and holy and frightening and gentle and tender . . . as ours;
a God whose love frightens us into His strong and powerful arms where He longs to whisper those terrifying words, “I love you.”

–Mike Yaconelli

The divinest thing about God

For the divinest thing in God is love, and the true ‘glory of God’ is neither some symbolical flashing light nor the pomp of mere power and majesty; nor even those inconceivable and incommunicable attributes which we christen with names like Omnipotence and Omnipresence and Infinitude, and the like. These are all at the fringes of the brightness. The true central heart and lustrous light of the glory of God lie in His love, and of that glory Christ is the unique Representative and Revealer, because He is the only Begotten Son, and ‘full of grace and truth.’

–Alexander McLaren
(1826 – 1910)
