Participation

He has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature. 2 Pet. 1:4

Jesus came to invite us to participate in the nature of God. We are not an audience watching God be God from afar. We are not contestants hoping to perform well enough to achieve this nature. Our hearts are home to Christ as we live and move and have our being within Him. We are permeated by His Spirit. We are enveloped into the beautiful loving relationship between the Father, Son and Spirit. We might experience transcendent awareness of this occasionally, but most of the time participating in His nature translates into breathing His love and grace in and out. As we open ourselves to giving and receiving His love, surrendering concerns to peace and joy, and seeing through His eyes of grace we experience the flow of the life of God in the lives we live.

Thank you for inviting me into Your nature.
