Had a discussion w/Ryan the other night regarding spiritual matters (that’s code for I was crying a lot & Ryan was comforting me). During this conversation he mentioned how as we’re wrestling to work toward an understanding of who God is (which we will never conclude this side of eternity) we’re describing Him and His actions…. an Infinite God… using finite language.
He read that somewhere along the way, so it wasn’t an original thought, but it was incredibly helpful to me & odds are I won’t be getting around to reading whatever book that was anytime soon.
Which reminds me, I’ve been meaning to share the following quote with you from Renewal as a Way of Life by Richard Lovelace:
Most divorces among Christians probably occur because the parties have not realized that marriage is a contract to aid in one another’s sanctification. Without this realization, we become experts at what is wrong with one another, without recognizing that the information our spouse is giving us about ourselves is an essential aid to our spiritual growth.
So thanks Ryan, for “serving God as an agent of [my] sanctification” (also Lovelace).
