The Reason For Being

Free and open intercourse with the God who made us, is one of the necessities of our being. Acquaintanceship with Him, and delight in Him, are the very life of our created existence. Better not to be than not to know Him, in whom we live, and move, and have our being. Better to pass away into unconsciousness or nothingness, than to cease to delight in Him, or to be delighted in by Him. The loss of God is the loss of everything; and in having God we have everything.”

-H.Bonar, From his “The Rent Veil”
