Quote of the Week

"The first facet of the glory of Christ's person is that through the wisdom, power and love of God, He, the God-man exists. The Father's agent in creation has taken created human life into Himself for all eternity. It sounds fantastic but it is true. This is a great and mighty wonder, a mystery in the full theological sense, a reality that only God could cause to be. Endless praise is the only fit response."

J.I. Packer, The Glory of Christ, p.48

Ted, Craver

It's hard to argue w/ Packer so Amen is definitely the appropriate response.

the wind was blowing through some river birch trees yesterday through the leaves of which the sun filtered like natural kaleidescope. trying to take in all the details was like reading Packer's statement over and over. dizzyingly fantastic.
how long will it take for reality to set in once fully in heaven?
