I want to take you back to last week's blog, because I believe the topic is crucial to those of us who have given our lives to serve as ministers of the Gospel. At the risk of being redundant, I want to remind you of some essential ingredients to spiritual Intimacy.
- "How can you draw close to God when you are far from yourself . . . Grant, Lord that I may know myself that I may know thee” (Augustine).
- "Our wisdom. . . consists almost entirely of two parts: the knowledge of God and of ourselves. But as these are connected together by many ties, it is not easy to determine which of the two precedes or gives birth to the other.” (Calvin)
