#125 Absorb and Become
Continuously updated, this collection of Martha‘s writings is for all in search of true intimacy with Christ.
Luke 11:34 ESV (emphasis mine)
‘Your eye is lamp of your body.’
We do focus. And focus is close to worship. Humanity worships. We receive inwardly that on which we set our sights.
What we look to, that we absorb.
Be sure your object is worthy of your very life’s becoming.
(From Adoration, “The Gaze of the Soul,” p. 121)
Humanity is always consumed with something, riveted to some internal essence.
Our nature is devotion—
creatures of worship, bowing subjects
to something chosen,
worthy of love.
