Fr. Howard Thompson
People often project unto God who they want Him to be and who they think He is, based on their needs. So a people enslaved, envision a warrior God who will fight and deliver them. A people who are sick, will focus on a God who will heal and restore them.
God is God, and is not limited by the images we project unto Him. Rather than our needs, God reveals His true self to us based on who He is. Our God in one who delights in saving us (Jn. 3:13-17). Today, allow God to be God, and follow His lead.
Save us Saviour of the world, for by Your cross and resurrection, You have set us free. May we use our freedom from sin, idols and egos to live for the glory of Your name. Amen.
