Deep thoughts by Donald Bloesch (Quote of the Day)

"In and of itself the finite is not capable of receiving the infinite, but the infinite can penetrate the finite." - Donald Bloesch, "God the Almighty: Power, Wisdom, Holiness, Love," 1995.


My reflections:

Too often we assume that God is ineffably mysterious and thus incapable for human understanding. But human history has shown that though with human powers alone the infinite God would be impossible to know, God has chosen to reveal himself. This was done ultimately in the incarnation, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ for the salvation of sinners like you and me. God found a way for humans to receive Him . . . O the riches of His mercy and grace.
