The soul of the universe

“God is in all things, and we are to see the Creator in the glass of every creature; that we should use and look upon nothing as separate from God, which indeed is a kind of practical Atheism; but, with a true magnificence of thought, survey heaven and earth, and all that is therein, as contained by God in the hollow of his hand, who by his intimate presence holds them all in being, who pervades and actuates the whole created frame, and is, in a true sense, the soul of the universe.”

Yet another quote from Jurgen Moltmann?

Nope, this one is from John Wesley, from his Sermon 23, ‘3rd Discourse on the Sermon on the Mount’

Sure sounds like something Moltmann might write.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this! I looked up at the stars and a half moon last night and I was amazed at God’s creative powerful majestic handiwork all sparkling, dazzling, millions of stars reflecting His genius… and yes, it is surprising that Wesley wrote this quote! He must have known Hebrews 1 and loved it!
