A God Who is Friend

This is the beauty of prayer and of Christian life: coming to understand that a God who converses with humans has created them and has lifted them up, with the capacity of saying “I” and “you.” What would we give to have such power as to create a friend to our taste and with a breath of our own life to make that friend able to understand us and be understood by us and converse intimately – to know our friend as truly another self?  That is what God has done…he has lifted us up so that he can talk with us and share his joys, his generosity, and his grandeur.  He is the God who converses with us.
