Doing human being

I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one—as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me. Jn 17:21

It’s been said that we are “human beings not human doings.” So we write books and have workshops about how to “be” instead of “do,” as if we can transform ourselves. Jesus’ prayer is about  being “in” Him rather than telling us to try really hard to be better human beings. Being in Him makes our lives a response to Who He is. And that causes transformation in our deepest innermost beings and in our outward expressions of who we are becoming in Him.

Lord, I surrender to becoming whoever You are making me.
