quote of the week: Rich Mullins - "for children only"

Christ said that His kingdom - the world where He Himself reigns - is for children. He Himself said that if we don't need a miracle we will most likely have little interest in Him. If we are able to get along joyfully in the grown-up world of supply, demand, survival, aggression, sensations and consumerism, then we'd probably have too low to stoop and too much trimming to do to slip through that needle's eye gateway to Him. If we aren't sick, we don't need a doctor. If we aren't lost, we don't need a leader.

Rich Mullins, Home, p. 35

I not only need miracles I see them happen. Sometimes I wish that more people could recognize the miracles and the movement of the Holy Spirit in their lives, aside from the miracles of creation, birth and unity. That all could see the personal, intimate miracles God provides us, I think there would be less nominal Christianity if people weren't so blind to the spiritual and reliant on the material.

What a thought provoking post!
Thanks.

Thanks, Preacherman.

Good thought, Lanny. Yes, Rich was a serious follower and reflected in helpful ways for us about the truth as it is in Jesus.

Nancy, Thanks. I'll go there right away.
