The Pursuit of God


Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus. Hebrews 10:19

Removing the Veil

Among the famous sayings of the Church fathers none is better know than Augustine’s ’Thou hast formed us for Thyself, and our hearts are restless till they find rest in Thee.’

The great saint states here in few words the origin and interior history of the human race.

God made us for Himself: that is the only explanation that satisfies the heart of a thinking man, whatever his wild reason may say. Should faulty education and perverse reasoning lead a man to conclude otherwise, there is little that any Christian can do for him. For such a man I have no message. My appeal is addressed to those who have been previously taught in secret by the wisdom of God; I speak to thirsty hearts whose longings have been wakened by the touch of God within them,and such as they need no reasoned proof. Their restless hearts furnish all the proof they need.
