The reading from Morning Prayer this morning is taken from 1 John and reminds us of those who acknowledge Jesus as the Son of God has God dwelling in him and he in God. There is so much more to this than just saying, “I believe”. This acknowledgement demands following ALL of the precepts laid out by Jesus, including the teachings the apostles themselves declared as hard, see John 6.
We are called to acknowledge Jesus in our thoughts, words, and actions. It is through this complete acceptance of this acknowledgment that we can fulfill who we are called to be, children of the Father and thereby God will dwell in us and we in Him.
