On October 9 last year during my leave of absence while I was pondering these things, I wrote in my journal:
My ONE Great Passion! Nothing is more clear and unshakeable to me than that the purpose of the universe is for the hallowing of God's name. His kingdom comes for THAT. His will is done for THAT. Humans have bread-sustained life for THAT. Sins are forgiven for THAT. Temptation is escaped for THAT.
And then on the next day, October 10, I wrote:
Lord, grant that I would, in all my weaknesses and limitations, remain close to the one clear, grand theme of my life: Your magnificence.
