Sep 7, 2020: Understanding Spirituality

Robert E. Webber

An incarnational understanding of spirituality affirms that Christ is our spirituality. It is his life, death, and resurrection that make us acceptable to God. We cannot love God with our whole heart, soul, and mind. But Christ can and has. We cannot love our neighbors as ourselves. But Christ can and has. It is Christ, therefore, who presents us to the Father, and it is because of him and through him and in him that we are spiritual.
