So We Can Change

English: Richard Rohr in Křižanov, Czech Republic

Richard Rohr

“Most of us were taught that God would love us if and when we change. In fact, God loves you so that you can change. What empowers change, what makes you desirous of change is the experience of love. It is that inherent experience of love that becomes the engine of change.”

——Richard Rohr

Jesus said, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”

What is life to the full?

  • A Knowledge of Grace.
  • An ability to give without receiving.
  • The ability to give up and move on.
  • A life to the full is one that recognizes the constant nature of change in the spiritual journey.

Richard Rhor points out the change is the byproduct of love, and without love we never change  or move toward that life. Jesus came that we might experience the fullness of our potential.
