Bridging the Chasm

thecall

If the chasm is to be bridged, God must bridge it.  If we are to desire the highest good, the highest good must come down and draw us so that it may become a reality we desire.  From this perspective there is no merit in either seeking or finding.  All is grace. The secret of seeking is not in our human ascent to God, but in God’s descent to us.  We start out searching, but we end up being discovered.  We think we are looking for something; we realized we are found by Someone…What brings us home is not our discovery of the way home but the call of the Father who has been waiting there for us all along, whose presence there makes home home.

–Os Guinness, The Call (Nashville, TN: Thomas Nelson), p 14.
