Partakers of the divine

‘…whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature.’  

(II Peter 1: 4)

We are products and partakers of the Divine,
whether we like it or not,
as are all things that live, all things that exist.

With our minds we explore the mystery that is Divine,
seeking light in darkness
and darkness in light.

As our souls seek communion with each other
in love and fellowship,
so they seek and find the Divine.

We cannot see God face to face,
yet we encounter God all the time and everywhere,
if we have eyes to see and ears to hear,
senses to connect with what is around us –
and spirits to reflect.

The Divine is the Great Mystery
we can never really know, and yet
the Divine is no mystery at all.

May we have the clarity and the humility
to realise it.
