The God I know
  • Acts 17:15,22--18:1
  • Psalm 148:1-2,11-14
  • John 16:12-15

As I reflect on the God I worship in my heart, I wonder if I too am guilty of religiously worshiping a God of my own created understanding. I fear that in my limited humanness I tend to lose my understanding of the all-encompassing magnitude of God, in whom we live and move, and I tend to lose the purpose of my Christian calling: to worship God through relationship. Though I may not have built statues according to my understanding of his image, I certainly have built my image of God in the limited box I see him in, in my under- standing of what he might want and what I should do for him to the point of reducing him into a transactional God. St Paul reminds me that I am blessed to be called to relationship with the one who created all things, and there is nothing I can do for him but to accept his sonship. Conflicting culture wars and ideologies call on us for a Christian response. Jesus has sent us the Holy Spirit to reveal to us the truth of God’s heart in all things.

PRAYER: Abba Father, grant me the grace to trust you with all my heart and to not lean on my own understanding. Amen.
