July 09 – A God-shaped Vacuum

tfh sunriseBlaise Pascal was a French mathematician, physicist, inventor, writer and Christian philosopher. He contributed to many areas of mathematics. Many brilliant quotes are attributed to him. Such as the following: “There is a God-shaped vacuum in the heart of every man that cannot be filled by any created thing, but only God, the Creator, made known through Jesus. In that, Pascal is in line with the words of the Bible, God’s inspired Word. Jesus Himself said, “I am the way, the truth and the life, no one can come to the Father except through me.” In spite of this, some try to reach the Father by doing good works, religious practices, or a human mediator. Timothy wrote “… there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all…” Only those properly related to Jesus by faith will ever see the Father.
