The Love that draws and holds us

One way I like to look at the Bible is to see it as God’s loving call to all of us to draw closer to God—in other words, to understand Him, to love Him more, and through this growing understanding to find regeneration and healing. Throughout its teachings this call is reiterated in various ways, conveying this timeless invitation: “The Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely” (Revelation 22:17 ).

Many times I’ve felt this call to draw closer to God, particularly when I’ve struggled with a difficult problem. It’s a call that is continuously reaching out to each of us, even as we’re looking to God in prayer for help. It’s the Christ, the manifestation of God, divine Love, coming to our thought, showing us that Love is already present, already loving us, already embracing us in its omnipotent goodness.

This is the end of the issue. Ready to explore further?
