Pascal: the hidden God

Monday, October 23, 2017
    [Jesus:] “No one has seen the Father except the one who is from God; only he has seen the Father. I tell you the truth, he who believes has everlasting life.”
    —John 6:46-47 (NIV)
    If the mercy of God is so great that He can instruct us, to our salvation, even when He hides Himself, what a brilliance of light we must expect when He reveals Himself!
    ... Blaise Pascal (1623-1662), Pensées (Thoughts) [1660], P.F. Collier & Son, 1910, #848, p. 301 (see the book)
    See also John 6:46-47; 1:1-5; 3:18; Rom. 5:10; Col. 3:3-4; 1 John 5:11-12
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant me eyes that can bear to look on You.
