Marie Von Erner Eschrenbach (do you know who she was?) wrote ………
The simplest and commonest most profound truth seems new and wonderful when we experience it for the first time in our own life.
This statement reminded me of the day my moment came.
I walked out on a deserted beach as the sun rose above the horizon.
God the Holy Spirit shone on my mind a light of REVELATION and in that instant I suddenly KNEW that God is bigger than human intellect, education, or even comprehension will ever be able to PIN DOWN.
My faith until this time was with the childlike belief that Jesus was important, the Bible was a type of Handbook a Guide Book of life direction.
The incident occurred when I was in my mid-30’s. It brought with it an understanding that remains ever illusive to express in an ‘intellectual’ capacity. I studied ‘theology’, at a college and graduated from a Bible College. (on line).
BUT…..That one morning of personal God-given revelation means the Big Big Questions like TRINITY, SACRIFICE, THE CROSS, The Coming of God the Holy Spirit and the destiny of ALL human souls with the need for ‘Holiness’ to face eternity, have now no struggle about them. They are KNOWN.
God for me now is SO BIG. He is in and through the whole universe. In Him alone is LIGHT,,,,,the Breath of all Life, Divine Creator, and our minds need life-long to be energised by His.
Personal Relationship, and a love for the written WORD revealed now in Jesus Christ who is THE WORD. (we should be passionate about learning more and more about HIM). It became the normal way.
Surrender, and humility are the most important Callings for each one of us.
In the LIGHT OF HIS BIGNESS may we learn to live, learn, grow. and develop and be grateful that the Bridge was built by Jesus Christ at the Cross, between us and His Divine Glory.
n.b. His Glory so INTENSE (without Christ we would be extinguished).
