The love that embraces humanity

That a large and rapidly growing interest in spirituality exists, there can be no question. A search of the Internet for listings that use the word spirituality shows thousands of sites. In addition to its religious context, spirituality is discussed in terms of how it relates to special groups or areas of interest, such as women, Afro-Americans, conservation, psychology, mysticism, medicine, health, and other fields. Even human sexuality is being connected with spirituality.

The diversity of views on the meaning of this word is immense. For most Christians, though, prayer and a belief in God are seen as essential for spiritual development, and small groups are springing up in many churches to study spirituality.

Without a desire to follow God's commands and to live as He expects us to live, we cannot truly grasp spirituality. Christ Jesus must have known this. His actions and thoughts were directed by God; He was more spiritually-minded than anyone else.
