Made to Run on Divine Fuel

tour-and-drives-2_1

God made us: invented us as a man invents an engine. A car is made to run on gasoline, and it would not run properly on anything else. Now God designed the human machine to run on Himself. He Himself is the fuel our spirits were designed to burn, or the food our spirits were designed to feed on. There is no other.

That is why it is just no good asking God to make us happy in our own way without bothering about religion. God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.

If you put anything
in the middle of a place
that is meant for God,
it will be too small.

The long terrible story

Human history
is the long terrible story
of man trying to find something
other than God which
will make him happy.

–C. S. Lewis
