May 27, 2024: Imitating Jesus

Robert E. Webber

Jesus is both the subject and object of the spiritual life. As subject, he has attained the spiritual life for us, that is, he alone reestablishes the unity between God and man, that unity which Adam lost. As object, we look to him to see what a human being united to God looks like. . . . The spiritual life is a passionate participation in God, imitating the one and only human being fully united to God, Jesus. — Robert Webber, The Divine Embrace: Recovering the Passionate Spiritual Life (Grand Rapids: Baker Books, 2006), 174.
