Living Into God’s Inheritance

Paul calls us to a grand vision of our participation in the life of the Triune God. Just as the life of God is more than the sum of its parts when God acts in concert, his love pouring through the relationship between the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, our lives also take on a greater purpose as we allow ourselves to be drawn into God’s life.

This is true of our personal lives, of our family lives, of our community life, and of our national life.
