I read this while drinking coffee at the Java Bean this morning.
“If the life of Jesus teaches us anything, it is that spiritual reality reverberates in the physical world. By ‘reverberates,’ I mean not just that it has meaning, but that it has dimension and impact as well. The spiritual life is not just an interesting religous idea, or a hoped-for berth in heaven. The spiritual life has earthly dimension – it is life that you can taste, and smell, and touch, and see, and hear. It is reality.”
p. 19 The Gospel According to Starbucks – Leonard Sweet
It has stuck with me all day. Are you tasting, smelling, touching, seeing, and hearing your relationship with Christ today, or do you merely believe?
