God is so cool!

Third time is a charm, right?

1.   I just finished Rift in Time by Michael Phillips.  This is a quote from pg. 254.

"All men and women have that opportunity.  God doesn't arbitrarily select some and reject others.  Being what is called "chosen" by God is a choice that man makes.  But only a few in every era do choose to open their spiritual eyes."

2.   I'm also working on Jesus the One and Only by Beth Moore.  This is a quote from Session 5 Notes on p.123.

"Christ seeks to readjust our vision of Him.  The more we are willing to receive, the more He is willing to reveal to us."  Colossians 2:2-3  says, " that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge."

3.   Then, tonight at our church service, Malcolm Ellis preached out of Mark 4:22-25.

"For whatever is hidden is meant to be disclosed, and whatever is concealed is meant to be brought out into the open.  If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear."

God has talked to me all summer about this truth.  He wants to show us his mysteries from the Bible, from nature, from prayer, through Christ.  We have to want to know and to see, to put effort into searching.
