Ravi Zacharias

In the teaching of Jesus, eternity, morality, accountability, and charity define the nature of our existence and the pattern of our behavior. Is it any wonder that the Christian faith is the richest faith in music and worship? It is based on a relationship, expressed in worship, demonstrated in charity, a great leveler of humanity, and it reaches into eternity. It can take captive the mind of a child and set free the greatest philosopher—both can express wonder in the most simple yet sublime terms.

~Ravi Zacharias in Jesus Among Secular Gods (p. 60)

Ravi is now with the Lord he faithfully served. He taught me that my desires for wonder and beauty would find their satisfaction in the person of Jesus Christ. He was a classy kind of guy. He also convinced me that I should read widely to deepen my faith. God’s kindness allowed so many of us to benefit from his ministry. He was a philosopher of the heart and a preacher of the cross.

I’d love to hear from you about his impact on your life. Feel free to share in the comments below. Pray for his family. Kyrie Eleison.

  1. This reminds me of one of Ravi’s “secrets” to joyful living. He uses the idea of a child who never loses wonder in the monotony of life. When you’re playing peek-a-boo with a baby, you will – almost always – get tired before they do. And they’ll laugh just as hard the last time as they did the first. That really made me question my own tendency towards boredom. Life is monotonous. Simple as that. Our lives are not made up of one exciting, adventurous, extraordinary moment after the next. So, we can either be bored and waiting for the next big moment, or we can find joy, wonder, and purpose in the monotony of life. This makes a life great, albeit quiet and simple. I thank Ravi for that.
