How He Loves Us--Kim Walker / Jesus Culture

Christian Mysticism

Tuesday, January 5, 2010


Mystics are men and women who...are wonder-workers who have fulfilled Jesus' prediction that His disciples would perform greater works than He did. Their miracles fascinate us because they are windows to the supernatural. But more than that, mystics show us what can happen when God touches human beings. Their lives paint a picture of what men and women become when God transforms them.
We get the word mystic from a Greek root that means "mystery." A mystic is a person who is "introduced into the mysteries." Broadly speaking, all Christians are mystics. We believe that by faith we are initiated into the mysteries of Christ's death and resurrection. But most Christians are not mystics in the technical sense because we have yet to penetrate the Christian mysteries in depth. That's what sets a true mystic apart from the crowd. Mystics enjoy a special closeness to God. They get rid of all the clutter in their hearts to make more room for God.
