June 24, 2013: God Did What We Cannot Do

Robert E. Webber

Here then is Christian spirituality: We are spiritual because of God’s divine embrace of humanity and all creation. By his own two hands—the incarnate Word and the Spirit—God’s divine embrace has restored our union with himself for us. He has done for us what we cannot do for ourselves—re-establish the connection with God that we ourselves broke in our rebellion.
