Writer's Wednesday -- Ralph Martin

"There are those of us who find God vague and diffuse and in hidden ways want Him to remain that way. When God is vague and distant our following of Him can be vague and distant and leave us with an experience of 'good conscience.' When God is close and specific and concrete, it calls for a response to Him that both allows and demands a more total yielding of our lives in specific ways... There must be an inevitable moment of crisis where the claims of Jesus become irreconcilable with my style of life."

---Ralph Martin, Hungry for God, Ignatius Press
