“I have never been separate from God nor can I be,except in my mind” (go through the link for the reference)

I have taken this quote from the article by Fr.Richard Rohr O.F.M. which is based on Romans 8.

Though I have not written here in some time,I have meditated on this quote since it arrived in my box.

Look at and bear with me as I meander.

This is the chapter in which Paul preached on the impossibility of being separated from Christ. In which his eloquence reached the skies and back,as he mentioned Principalities and Powers and all else that we might fear.

Christ can never be separate. He indwells and holds in being the very stones themselves: and if stones, then certainly is within us!

Will never forsake us nor separate himself from us. But we separate ourselves,not in the physical way, yet we build walls which divide our mind and muffle the voice of the very one who enlivens us with his Spirit.

Every creature under heaven is alive in Him.

“Incarnation is the oldest Christian story.

Through Christ, God is pouring God’s self into all creation. To be Christian, then, is to see Christ in every thing-” Richard Rohr

When we hear that the Word became flesh and dwelt among us,we also realize that at one and the same time Christ is Everest is verdent pastures was within all creatures when Jesus walked this earth.

I am crucified with Christ

Galatians 2.19-22

For through the law I died to the law, so that I might live to God. I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. I do not nullify the grace of God; for if justification comes through the law, then Christ died for nothing.(N.I.V.)USA (c)1985,1995

About Andrew Blair

Living in Maroubra Australia. Carer for my wife Jessica. Simple web designer and Administrator; photographer, artist and theologian. In 2016 I had been Ordained to the Priesthood by a Celtic Catholic Bishop, I had the mistaken idea that the church might be changed from within. That was not to be. We attend the Uniting Church in Maroubra Junction where we are very happy. My greatest desire is to serve God in the capacity of an Interfaith dialoguer since this seems to be my calling since 1997.
