A Key and a Lock

locknkey

We were created by Love, through Love and for Love’s own pleasure. God created us because He was so full of goodness it could not be contained. So, He wanted to share all of Himself with someone. God is a giver and literally needs nothing from us. He already lives in perfect harmony with God the Son and God, the Holy Spirit. I believe writer/pastor Timothy Keller called it their dance of perfect harmony in one of his books.

God is the key, we are the lock waiting to be unlocked to get to know Him better. He just wants to share all of his beauty and glory with you every day. Won’t you take the time to get to know Him better? He can be found within the pages of the Bible, waiting for you to get to know Him. It is a truly amazing book.

Books, Books, Books to Feed the Soul

God has blessed man with so many well-educated theologians, pastors and writers. My husband and I this year came across a fantastic group of books written by Timothy Keller, the founding pastor of  Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City. He is so deeply spiritual with his writing and takes you beyond the level of the milk of the word and leads you to the meat of  the scriptures. I particularly enjoyed his two books Hidden Christmas and The Reason for God – Belief in an Age of Skepticism. The last chapter in each book is so moving, poetic, it almost brought tears to my eyes.

If you get a chance, these two books will enhance your understanding of scriptures and help your ability to speak about the reasons for your faith to other people. I hope God will bless your day. Praise God!!
