The Movement of God

A reading for Wednesday, April 15, 2015: John 17:20-26.

Nadia Bolz-Weber wrote, "The movement in our relationship to God is always from God to us. Always. We can't, through our piety or goodness, move closer to God. God is always coming near to us. Most especially in the Eucharist and in the stranger."

As Jesus continues to pray, he prays for us... That we might experience oneness with God. That we might be able to share the good news with others. That we might know the glory that Jesus knows and go where Jesus goes.

Truth is there is nothing we can do to make our way to God. It is always, no matter what, God coming to us and never our good deeds, our understanding, or even our faithfulness. It is God's faithfulness to us alone that truly saves. God was literally willing to die for us rather than have us face the consequences of sin.
