Being in God’s Likeness
Readings: Acts: 1:15-17, 20-26; John 4:11-16; John 17:11019
Originally delivered on May 12, 1991
We must be ever ready to discover beauty, truth, and goodness in new ways because God is forever revealing and proclaiming the wonder of God in the universe. We must be open to learning about God’s creation. We are called today to let go of our ways of thinking so that we might be open to seeing and understanding God’s revelations to us. John tells us in the Gospel that God is Love and that if we are loving, then we are of God, despite our sinfulness. Indeed, God is in us and we should exalt, rejoice, and celebrate because we ourselves are a reflection of God.
