I’ve been confronted with Ireland since the summer. Now by the fine theologian, pastor, writer Calvin Miller:
“We are inebriated with a yearning after God. We are like earthly junkies needing our ‘God fix’ to live.” ‘The Celt was a very much a God-intoxicated man,’ says John McQuarrie. “This narcotic state of heart is indeed intoxicating. For when we have drunk deeply of the nature of God, there is born within us a God thirst that can never be slaked by any lesser stream.” (The Path of Celtic Prayer, Calvin Miller, InterVarsity Press, 2007)
Not feeling intoxicated—maybe guilty. The above statement is worth talking about.
