weekends are for a thousand little things


‘For millions of Christians…God is no more real than He is to the non-Christian. They go through life trying to love an ideal and be loyal to a mere principle.

Over against all this cloudy vagueness stands the clear scriptural doctrine that God can be known in personal experience.

A loving Personality dominates the Bible, walking among the trees of the garden and breathing fragrance over every scene. Always a living Person is present, speaking, pleading, loving working, and manifesting Himself whenever and wherever His people have the receptivity necessary to receive the manifestation.

The Bible assumes as a self-evident fact that men can know God with at least the same degree of immediacy as they know any other person of thing that comes within the field of their experience.

The same terms are used to express the knowledge of God as are used to express knowledge of physical things.

‘O taste and see that the Lord is good.’…the whole import of the Scripture is toward this belief.

What can all this mean except that we have in our hearts organs by means of which we can know God as certainly as know material things through our five senses?….”

~A.W. Tozer, The Pursuit of God

Blessings on your weekend, wondrous friends, as you taste and see that the Lord is good in a thousand little ways!

All’s grace
because all’s being transfigured for the glory of Christ alone,
