Tauler: God's way

Sunday, March 4, 2018
    Commemoration of Felix, Bishop, Apostle to the East Angles, 647
    The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ... But in fact God has arranged the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. If they were all one part, where would the body be? As it is, there are many parts, but one body.
    —1 Corinthians 12:12,18-20 (NIV)
    God does not lead all His servants by one road, nor in one way, nor at one time; for God is in all things; and that man is not serving God aright, who can only serve Him in his own self-chosen way.
    ... Johannes Tauler (ca. 1300-1361), The Inner Way, Sermon XVI (see the book)
    See also 1 Cor. 12:12,18-20,27; Matt. 5:6; Luke 10:41-42; 1 Cor. 14:1
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant me a heart that waits upon You.
