THE NATURAL DESIRE FOR GOD

Submitted by rjzaar on June 28, 2016 - 5:54am

The natural desire for God is expressed through our intellect which seeks ultimate truth, a will seeking the absolute good, and our heart which seeks unconditional love. Having established these aspects to the human person and recognising everyone desires these things, everyone therefore desires God, even though they may not acknowledge God in their life. It is human to have all these desires, but we can’t fulfil them by ourselves. I can’t just see God. I am finite and God is infinite. Therefore I have to wait upon God to act. Because I am a personal being, only through personal relationship can I be fulfilled.
