OFFERING CHRIST


Offering God's love multiplies the fruitful life.  By offering Christ, we complete God's grace, the grace we received when we invited God into our lives and made room for Him in our hearts.  The receptivity that opened our hearts to God opens doors to others.  Our lives become a doorway through which people enter into spiritual life.  God with us becomes God through us.  As we invite and encourage others into the life of Christ and stimulate their spiritual exploration, we perceive God working through us.  We become "ambassadors for Christ, since God is making His appeal through us" (2 Corinthians 5:20).  Grace becomes tangible through invitations.
