Finding the obvious, finding the special
I've been reading John Gerstner's Reasons for Faith. Today I came across this wonderful passage:
The world in which we live is a great whodunit. God made the world but left it for us to find out that He was the maker. But there is something unique about this divine whodunit—the perpetrator wants to be found. He has deliberately left clues scattered everywhere. He has made His authorship so plain that only the willfully blind can fail to see. He has not left Himself without a witness, that "happily men might feel after him and find him." He obviously wants to be the known, not the unknown God. We are morally certain that the God of this world would reveal Himself. The only question is where and when He has done it.
In other words, we know of the possibility, and even the high probability, of further (ed: special) revelation.
Lent is upon us. I hope you all find the obvious. And for those who apply themselves, may you find the special
