24 February 2019 - To be saved is not just to have our sins forgiven, Rev. David Pileggi tells us. Being saved, receiving divine life, is being in union with the Messiah. Divine life gives out, is not self-preserving. Divine life comes through listening, meditating, digesting the words of Jesus so that we begin to imitate God in love, forgiveness, generosity, mercy. Discipleship is a relationship with Jesus where we're studying him, watching him, imitating him, but we cannot do this of our own strength. We need the help of the Holy Spirit to participate in the divine nature. This sanctification and transformation, this becoming like the Messiah takes time and discipline. Readings: Exodus 33:18-34:9; 2 Peter 1:1-10; Luke 6:27-38 Blessed by our teachings? Consider saying thank you with a small (or large) donation.
