CQOD: 11/05/05 -- Oman: all things created to reveal God

Christian Quotation of the Day

November 5, 2005
    For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
    -- Colossians 1:16-17 (NIV)

    God’s manifestation of Himself has not been for our personal experience only, but all creation, and all time, all mankind and all man’s life upon the earth, are manifestations of God; and the man turns to barrenness and folly who limits himself to his own narrow thought and futile endeavors. All human experience is revelation if the great purpose of life is the discipline of souls, and the one unchanging guidance for all men is duty.
    ... John Oman (1860-1939), Vision and Authority [1928]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, may I know more of You?
