“Faith is a passionate intuition”…William Wordsworth
“It’s hard-perhaps impossible-to miss the spiritual side of being human. The real question is not whether it’s there, but this: What are you going to do about it? Some would deny it, ignore it, or neglect it in favor of following their own whims and desires. The wiser among us cultivate it by seeking God…asking questions…acting on intuition…listening to that still, small voice of love in each heart…in each soul…in yours.” (from a devotional of mine) As I typed that, the following C.S. Lewis quote kept coming to mind so I knew I had to add it here. Sometimes, God writes my Sunday Faith Blogs…actually, almost always:
“I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept his claim to be God. That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic — on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg — or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God, but let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.” (C.S. Lewis)
Have a great Sunday……do some thinking, do some worshiping! Allow your doubts (and I go through it, too, believe me, so did the Apostles, and they saw with their own eyes and wrote about it!) to wash away in the words of both these quotes……..
HAVE FUN! GOD BLESS YOU!
