“For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” vs. 9
Most of the things that we say about God are more a reflection of ourselves than they are of God. The truth is that our little minds and inadequate vocabularies are incapable of even coming close to describing the Divine Presence. We have a sense that there is a God and occasionally we’ll catch a glimpse of Something that stirs our souls but that’s about the best we can do. But when we combine that with what is revealed in Jesus the Christ, it’s more than enough to satisfy our hearts and minds. In Christ we are enveloped in the mystery that sparked life in the universe and begin to understand that the essence of God is found in love. As individuals we are a part of a reality that is far greater than ourselves and that gives meaning and purpose to our lives. We are a precious link in the creative process and are moving with the rest of creation toward a magnificent completion in Christ. As we journey through those twists and turns of life, experiencing all its joys and sorrows, we don’t have to know everything…but we can imitate Jesus and walk the way of unconditional love, and through us goodness and mercy will prosper. Who could ask for anything more? Even if we can’t know the Lord of the Universe, knowing love is enough!
