Spiritual Quote of the Day (N. T. Wright, on God As ‘The One Who Satisfies’)

“God is the creator and lover of the world. Jesus spoke of God as ‘the Father who sent me,’ indicating that, as he says elsewhere, ‘anyone who has seen me has seen the Father’ (John 14:9). Look hard at Jesus, especially as he goes to his death, and you will discover more about God than you could ever have guessed from studying the infinite shining heavens or the moral law within your own conscience. God is the one who satisfies the passion for justice, the longing for spirituality, the hunger for relationship, the yearning for beauty.”— Biblical scholar and Anglican bishop N. T. Wright, Simply Christian: Why Christianity Makes Sense (2006)
