God has made us for God’s self

I remember a time in my life when I felt like I was off of the map. My thinking had become muddled. I didn’t believe myself worthy to be considered loved by God. Many in the Church said so. I, too, live to tell you that when God acts in Christ, and we bear his image by virtue of our turning, and by our feeding on God’s Word and Sacrament – I learned that all who come to God, including someone like me – well, God gives to all who turn to God. And, restless hearts find rest in God.

Spirit fruit

Jesus is not one to refuse an opening; neither, does the Spirit. The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. There is no law against those things. (from Galatians)


Life in the Spirit asks us to uncage ourselves, to be free from the things that bogged us down before we found our resurrected lives; this in order to more fully be as God has created us to be – to be the people of God that live in unity with the Holy Spirit. When we set our lives on this course, our lives more fully take on the shape of God. What God intervenes to separate in Genesis, God reverses at Pentecost. What could not be understood before is revealed with new understanding. Now God’s manifestation in the world is complete in Christ through the work of the Holy Spirit.
