God Is My Tea Bag

teaThe challenge of the Christian life is to become steeped in God. The method: I the water and God the tea bag. That sounds odd, for Jesus spoke of himself as living water. But I would have no power to change clear water into green tea. God is the One who can transform me. I simply need to receive the tea bag, allowing it to work its transformation. As I let myself become steeped in God, the union of tea and water becomes tea. Because  God wanted to be steeped in the human condition,  God became one of us. God became human. Fully one with humanity, God steeps the Godself in each of us, allowing us to become divine. Enjoy the brew, and drink its responsibility.

    In Eucharist Jesus becomes one with us and we become one with Him. It’s like melting wax on wax. Our responsibility is to become truly Alive.
