CQOD: 12/30/05 -- Meister Eckhart: the nearness of God

Christian Quotation of the Day

December 30, 2005
    No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us. By this we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit.
    -- 1 John 4:12-13 (ESV)

    I have a capacity in my soul for taking in God entirely. I am as sure as I live that nothing is so near to me as God. God is nearer to me than I am to myself; my existence depends on the nearness and the presence of God.
    ... Meister Eckhart (1260?-1327?)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are nearer to me than my breath.
