Chesterton once wrote, “Plato has told you a truth; but Plato is dead. Shakespeare has startled you with an image; but Shakespeare will not startle you anymore. But imagine what it would be to live with such men still living, to know that Plato might break out with an original lecture tomorrow, or that at any moment Shakespeare might shatter everything with a simple song.”
That is what it’s like to live with Jesus in your life. Unlike Plato or Shakespeare, Jesus is alive and ready to dazzle on a regular basis with insight and wisdom. Living with Jesus is always expecting, and receiving that which is new to the human psyche.
Imagine! Creator God allows us to discover Him.
“If you search for Me with all your heart, I will be found by you.”
Creator God reveals Himself to us in direct proportion to our obedience to His commands. Morning by morning new mercies and aspects of His love envelop me and guide me through the day.
“He is no fool to give up what he cannot keep, to gain what he cannot lose.”
Praise God from whom all blessings flow.
