More than just a trust fall

Frank Laubach:

For do you not see that God is trying experiments with human lives? That is why there are so many of them. He has [six billion] experiments going around the world at this moment. And his question is “how far will this man and that woman allow me to carry this hour? … For I who pushed life up through the protozoan and the tiny grass, and the fish and the bird and the dog and the gorilla and the man. … I have not become satisfied yet. I am not only willing to make this hour marvelous. I am in travail to set you akindle with the Christ-thing which has no name. How fully can you surrender and not be afraid?

quoted in John Ortberg, The Life You’ve Always Wanted, 207.
