From Inside the Collar
"this is eternal life, that they may know you...."
To know, in the biblical sense, means participatory knowledge. We are invited to live in God, to participate in His Life. As his life is eternal and unlimited, we will live fully, eternally in Him.
The miracle of the Gospel is not that we invite Christ into our lives, but that He invites us into His.
This is a radically different, very counter cultural understanding of the Faith. It is a relationship, in which we are not in charge and yet have phenomenal freedom and responsibility.
