“The dark riddle of life is illuminated in Jesus; the meaning, purpose, and goal of everything that happens to us, and the way to make it all count can be learned only from the Way, the Truth, and the Life…Everything that is comes alive in the risen Christ. Everything–great, small, important, unimportant, distant, and near–has its place, its meaning, and its value through union with Him (as Augustine said, He is more intimate with us than we are with ourselves), nothing is wasted, nothing is missing. There is never a moment that does not carry eternal significance–no action that is is sterile, no love that lacks fruition, and no prayer that is unheard.” ~ Brennan Manning, Abba’s Child

“And this is the secret: Christ lives in you. This gives you assurance of sharing his glory.”  Colossians 1:27

  1. Abba’s Child is one of my favorites…Brennan’s view of Christ melted my heart toward receiving the love that was always there for me, but thought I didn’t deserve. His love healed me. Thank you for sharing this. I have a YouTube video of Brennan I’d love to share with you. If you search for ‘Brennan Manning at Woodcrest’ you’ll get to a very short video that helped change my life. So powerful. XO
