Long Journey Home

We cannot find God without God.

We cannot reach God without God.

We cannot satisfy God without God–which is another way of saying that all our seeking will fall short unless God starts and finishes the search.

The decisive part of our seeking is not our human ascent to God, but His descent to us.

Without God’s descent there is no human ascent.

The secret of the quest lies not in our brilliance, but in His grace.

~Os Guinness, Long Journey Home.
