Taylor: the goal of faith

Friday, April 14, 2023
    And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?”—which means, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”
    —Mark 15:34 (NIV)
    Risk, as we have seen, is indispensable to any significant life, nowhere more clearly than in the life of the spirit. The goal of faith is not to create a set of immutable, rationalized, precisely defined and defendable beliefs to preserve forever. It is to recover a relationship with God.
    ... Daniel Taylor, The Myth of Certainty, Jarrell, 1986, p. 123 (see the book)
    See also Mark 15:34; Job 13:15; Ps. 22; 23:4; 44:6-7; Isa. 26:4; 2 Cor. 1:9; 10:4
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You showed us how to venture faith.
