The Elusive Presence

Blaise Pascal said, “a religion which does not affirm that God is hidden is not true…and a religion which does not offer the reason is not illuminating.” Surely you are a God who hides himself. And surely you are a God who does not need to explain himself. Every divine disclosure is also a divine veiling. From the cloak of clouds on Sinai to the flesh of Jesus of Nazareth—God reveals himself and hides at the same time. This cannot be explained away. He will not be tamed or exhausted. The mystery of his person will never be fully known by anyone but himself.
