The Inauguration of Christian Experience
Deuteronomy 32:11-12
As an eagle stirs up her nest, flutters over her young, spreads abroad her wings, takes them, bears them on her wings:…

The inauguration of a Christian experience is the inauguration of a new life. A man moves out into a new element. Walking by faith instead of by sight is a good deal what trying to fly is to the young eaglet. He shrinks from it. He looks longingly back at the nest. And hence the complete change of sphere, this detachment of old formulas of thought, old habits of life, old desires, old principles of action, old aims, is a literal stirring up of the nest. God wants him where He alone can lead him.

(M. Vincent, D. D.)
