Near Unto God

The fellowship of being near unto God must become reality, in the full and rigorous prosecution of life. It must permeate and give color to our feeling, our perceptions, our sensations, our thinking, our imagining, our willing, our acting, our speaking. It must not stand as a foreign factor in our life, but it must be the passion that breathes through our whole existence.

-Abraham Kuyper, To Be Near Unto God

Amen! Praise God! Oh how I would love to read that book! I'm looking forward to seeing and spending countless hours in the library in Heaven... If God will shield my eyes from His own brilliant glory long enough for me to be able pay attention to anyone or anything else, that is. :)
