What is God’s Point?

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

“The Lord’s end in view and inmost joy … the salvation of the human race.” (Secrets of Heaven, 2034)

Simple and profound.

God’s goal and God’s joy  is captured in salvation.  And that salvation could be captured in words like ‘awareness’ and ‘connection.’  If we are fully aware, awake to our raucously living connection with God and others, and willing to do the disciplined work that clears that space, we are saved, saved from fear, anger, jealousy, vengeance.  That is heaven here. And that is heaven in the next life.

The poet Mary Oliver captured it well….

When it’s over, I want to say: all my life
I was a bride married to amazement.
I was a bridegroom, taking the world into my arms.
