Gathering in Christ

Job 26:14a
Indeed, these are the mere edges of His ways, and how small a whisper we hear of Him!

The wildness of nature has to be recognized; there are forces in the earth and air and sea that baffle attempts at explanation or control; all we can do is give a direction for thought along certain lines….

Supposing a scientist with a diseased olfactory nerve says there is no perfume in a rose, and to prove his statement, he dissects the rose and tabulates every part and then says, “Where is the perfume? It is a fiction. I have demonstrated that there is none.” There is always one fact more that science cannot explain, and the best thing to do is not to deny it in order to preserve our sanity but to say, “as Job did, “No, the one fact more which you cannot explain means that God must step in just there, or there is no explanation to be had.”
