The Practice of the Presence of God

February 2, 2011

Damaris Zehner at Internet Monk is doing a series of posts on the Christian Life.  In the third part of the series, she mentions Brother Lawrence’s classic, The Practice of the Presence of God and says this about it:

Through discipline and practice we cooperate in the process of being remade into the image and likeness of Christ.  The process is not something we initiate, nor do we finish it; but God in his mysterious plan has invited us to participate in our remaking, and this participation is work.

It’s often the hardest work we ever do.
