Found Words – CLC

Been spending my Monday nights at a Christian Life Community group that focuses on Ignation prayer. Interesting thought from tonight:

“God is so close, so natural, but we don’t see him because we think He should be more distant…

Now, even if we know this is in our heads, we don’t always feel comfortable with this God-who-is-close, and we often try to use many ways of talking about God which can hold him at a distance: for example, we call Him King or Judge or Redeemer etc… Now all of these can be very useful in understanding the fullness of God, but our basic reliationship with God should be expressed in the language of Friendship (as in John 15:15)”
