Meeting Frank Laubach

Frank C. Laubach was a noted scientist, linguist and missionary. He made it his quest to live every moment in the presence of God. I just heard of his name today. The following quotes are from a collection of letters in the book, Letters by a Modern Mystic (published in 1937).

“One question now to be put to the test is this: Can we have that contact with God all the time? All the time awake, fall asleep in his arms, and awaken in his presence? Can we attain that? Can we do His will all the time? Can we think His thoughts all the time?” — Frank Laubach (March 23, 1930).

“How I wish, wish, wish that a dozen or more persons who are trying to hold god endlessly in mind would all write their experiences so that each would know what the other was finding as a result! The results, I think, would astound the world. At least the results of my own effort are astounding to me… The very universe has come to seem so homey! I know only a little more about it than before, but that little is all! It is vibrant with the electric ecstasy of God! I know what it means to be ‘God intoxicated” — Frank Laubach (October 12, 1930)

Philippians 2:11-13 (NIV) (12)Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, (13)for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.
