The throbbing heart of the New Testament

God desires and is pleased to communicate with us through the avenues of our minds, our wills, and our emotions. The continuous and unembarrassed interchange of love and thought between God and the souls of the redeemed men and women is the throbbing heart of the New Testament.

I read something by A.W. Tozer that profoundly impacted my understanding of twisted theology. Think carefully with me about the following statement: "Christian theology teaches the doctrine of prevenient grace, which, briefly stated, means that before a person can seek God, God must first have sought the person".

This statement takes me to that place where God found me; hiding behind a tree. God asked, "Why are you hiding?" I responded "Because I am naked and afraid, LORD”, "How do you know you’re naked?” He said. Every day, I am reminded of my nakedness but the Love of GOD; that is beyond human comprehension, is demonstrated, when He makes a garment and covers my nakedness, by the righteousness of Christ.
