Obviousness


“That which is most obvious is never the full story, either about ourselves or others. Christ invites us into the fullness of His life, to live in union with the full story, no matter how deeply it might be hidden. At the very depth of the soul is a song of unbounded thanksgiving.” (Father Stephen Freeman)

“No man can survey himself without forthwith turning his thoughts towards the God in whom he lives and moves; because it is perfectly obvious, that the endowments which we possess cannot possibly be from ourselves; nay, that our very being is nothing else than subsistence in God alone.” (John Calvin)

“It should be obvious that the very idea of a self-existent, self-sufficient, totally unique God does not appeal to people who would use the same words to describe themselves!” (Stuart Briscoe)

“…it is a major spiritual error to trust the obvious rather than to submit to God and obey His will foremost. Ever remember Who the Prime Actor is in the spiritual life - trust and obey.” (Dynamis 4/6/2013)

“…it is not the obvious, easy to detect, large sins that are most efficacious in sending people to Hell, but it is the subtle hard to detect small thoughts and actions which influence minds and gradually and almost unknowingly take them away from God.” (Father George Morelli)
