And only when God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the loving God in Christ do we know what life is. We’re not some casual and meaningless product of evolution. Each of us is the result of a thought of God. Each of us is willed, each of us is loved, each of us is necessary. There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know him and to speak to others of our relationship with him.
