The heart itself is only a small vessel

I went to a church that I quite liked yesterday. It was beautiful and simple. The worship was deep and reverent and yet, joyful and casual. The people, the sermon, and the service as a whole seemed to find its place within the walls of mystery and grace. The pastor used this quote and it was meaningful to me.

The heart itself is only a small vessel, yet dragons are there, and lions, there are poisonous beasts, and all the treasures of evil, there are rough and uneven roads, there are precipes; but there too is God and the angels, life is there, and the Kingdom, there too is light, and there the apostles and heavenly cities, and treasures of grace. All things lie within that little space.

-Makarios the Great

Thanks to Dayspring Church for giving me a small glimmer of spiritual beauty.
