Modern man has lost any sense of God’s nearness, but Christianity teaches that God reveals himself through every single thing he has ever brought into being, whether a created object or historical event.
— R. C. Sproul
Revelation is a divine activity; not, therefore, a human achievement. Revelation is not the same thing as discovery or the dawning of insight, or the emerging of a bright idea. Revelation does not mean man finding God, but God finding man, God sharing his secrets with us, God showing us himself.
— J. I. Packer
