Do you understand your faith as a relationship to me? You are correct, and this means it is more than intellectual assent, but the term relationship is so broad that it can be used to describe the relative positions of inanimate objects, and your faith in me is more than this. My word speaks of transformation into my likeness. In my final prayer I asked that we all may be one, and the epistle writer describes my followers as partakers of the divine nature. This is a level of relationship beyond anything else for which you use this term. Are you prepared to look at this relationship as participation in my life?
