MAN IS NATURALLY DRAWN TOWARD GOD’S PRESENCE

“Of all God’s creation, man is the only creature implanted with spiritual aspirations, leading him to prayer and worship. Wherever you find man, you will find him engaged in some sort of worship. No mistake about it, something within the creature lifts itself up in response to something within the Creator. That “something” is the great mystery of the human heart created in the image of God.”

“Man is the weakest creature there is, but he is the only creature that knows how weak he is. That is where his glory lies: in his weakness. He is able to know how weak he is, and no other creature knows this.”

“In the vastness of the universe, man is very small indeed. But seen as a spiritual creature in the bosom of God, he is greater than all the winds that blow and all the mountains that rise and all the seas that flow and all the rivers that run down to the sea. He is greater, because God made him in His own image.”

“Christ came down in order that He might taste death for every man. That word ‘taste’ does not mean taste as a child might taste food and then reject it. It means ‘experience.’”

“We do not yet see all things put under His feet, but we do see what was done. By faith, we see all things put under Him.”

“We see not all things under Him, but we see Jesus. God has put all things in subjection under His feet. For in that He put all in subjection under Him, He left nothing that is not put under Him. We do not see it all done yet, but we have faith, and we see Jesus, who for a little while was made lower than angels in order that He might suffer death. We see Him crowned with glory and honor at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. And when He comes back again, He will put all things under His feet.”
