We’re your kin

He sent his own Son in a body like the bodies we sinners have (Romans 8:3; NLT).

All who heard him were amazed at his understanding and his answers (Luke 2:47; NLT).

Love your enemies! […] Pray for those who hurt you (Luke 6:27-8; NLT).

Jesus replied, “Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?” Then he looked around him and said, “Look, these are my mother and brothers. Anyone who does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother” (Mark 3:33-5; NLT).



You had a mortal body,
Just like ours,

And the finest human mind
There’s ever been.

Plus, you have such perfect love
For all the world,

And the wisest ever soul –
Yet we’re your kin.

Neither black nor white

He is not human (numbers 23:19; NLT).

Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our own image, to be like us” (Genesis 1:26; NLT).

“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine” (Isaiah 55:8; NLT).

No one has ever seen God (John 1:18; NLT).

God is love (1 John 4:16; NLT).


Lord God,

You’re neither black nor white,
Nor male, nor female,

In fact, you are not human, Lord,
At all;

And though you make us mortals
In your image,

It’s clear that in some ways
We’re not like you.

You don’t belong
To any known religion,

And none of us
Has ever seen your face;

We only know you’re light,
And peace, and fire;

We only know that you are love,
And grace.


Time out

There is one Lord […] who is over all and in all and living through all (Ephesians 4:5-6; NLT).

In him we live and move and have our being (Act 17:28; NIV).

You are the temple of the living God (Luke 17:21; NKJV).


Meditation offers us time out
From the uniquely human illusion
That we are separate
From all living things,
Including God.


Like you

I, the Lord your God, am holy (Leviticus 19:2; NLT).

God’s way is perfect (Psalm 18:30; NLT).

God is love (1 John 4:16; NIV).

The Lord is peace (Judges 6:24; NIV).

Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our own image, to be like us” (Genesis 1:26; NLT).


You are so very holy.

I wish I could be holy,
Just like you.

You are so very perfect.

I wish I could be perfect,
Just like you.

You are so very loving.

I wish I could be loving,
Just like you.

You are so very peaceful.

I wish I could be peaceful,
Just like you.



Unconditional love

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1:1; NLT).

For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16; NLT).

He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases (Psalm 103:3; NLT).

And the Father, as he had promised, gave him the Holy Spirit to pour out upon us (Acts 2:33; NLT).

The LORD looks down from heaven on the entire human race; he looks to see if anyone is truly wise, if anyone seeks God. But no, all have turned away; all have become corrupt (Psalm 14:2-3; NIV).

You made the world,
And gave us your Son.
You forgive our sins,
And heal our wounds.
You pour out your Spirit,
And offer us eternal life.

What’s more –
You do all this
Despite knowing
Exactly how we behave
Towards each other,
And towards you.

That’s what I call
Unconditional love!
