May 6, 2024: Jesus Does It for Us

Robert E. Webber

Jesus is the one man who fulfills the vision of God for humanity and for the life of the world. He repents for all, is baptized for all, receives the Spirit for all, dies for all, is resurrected for all, and will return to establish the new heavens and new earth. Our repentance, baptism, and reception of the Holy Spirit is our willing reception of his divine embrace. We contemplate, not ourselves, the recipients of this embrace, but he who embraced us. — Robert Webber, The Divine Embrace: Recovering the Passionate Spiritual Life (Grand Rapids: Baker Books, 2006), 167.
