How Big is Your God?

“I think we have two choices in the face of such big beauty (the universe): terror or awe. And this is precisely why we attempt to chart God, because we want to be able to predict Him, to dissect Him, to carry Him around in our dog and pony show.  We are too proud to feel awe and to fearful to feel terror.  We reduce Him to math so we don’t have to fear Him, and yet the Bible tells us fear is the appropriate response, that it is the beginning of wisdom.”  Donald Miller, Blue Like Jazz, page 204

Religious Habit versus Engaging God

“I believe that the greatest trick of the devil is not to get us into some sort of evil but rather have us wasting time.  This is why the devil tries so hard to get Christians to be religious.  If he can sink a man’s mind into habit, he will prevent his heart from engaging God.”  Donald Miller, Blue Like Jazz, page 13

Have Faith in God’s Love

“Faith is rest, not toil.  It is the giving up all the former weary efforts to…induce God to love and pardon; and the calm reception of the truth so long rejected, that God is not waiting for any such inducements, but loves and pardons of His own goodwill, and is showing that goodwill to any sinner who will come to Him on such a footing, casting away his own poor performances or goodnesses, and relying implicitly upon the free love of Him who so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son.” -HORATIUS BONAR
