May 13, 2024: Our Response to God’s Embrace

Robert E. Webber

God’s embrace of us . . . is the divine side of our spirituality, the very source of our spiritual being. . . . Our response to God’s embrace . . . is the passion of our own spiritual life. As God has embraced us, so also we embrace God by a full, active, conscious, and passionate participation in the purposes of God for life in this world. . . . We live with God in the world, the home of his habitation, reaching our hands forth in love to God, to God’s creation, and to all God’s creatures. — Robert Webber, The Divine Embrace: Recovering the Passionate Spiritual Life (Grand Rapids: Baker Books, 2006), 170.
