Sample text

Loving God was the subject matter for an Israelite’s whole day. All of life was about loving God with every ounce of one’s being. This was so important that they were to teach their children. So important that they were to recite the Shema when they were at home and when they were at work or on vacation. So important that they were to recite them when they got up and when they went to bed, which is the liturgical church’s catalyst for morning prayers and vespers prayers. So important that they were to write them on scraps of papyrus, roll them up, and place them in little leather pouches, and strap the pouches to the forehead and arm.

We learn to love God and love others only if we dedicate ourselves to an ongoing commitment to live the Jesus Creed daily. So, my prayer is that by spreading out these two themes over forty days, with a new exploration each day, we will expose ourselves to the potent grace of God’s love sufficiently to become more loving. One more reminder. Neither 40 Days Living the Jesus Creed nor The Jesus Creed can be as effective as they are intended to be if we do not commit ourselves to reciting the Jesus Creed in the morning, in the evening, and anytime during the day that it comes to mind.

We learn to live the Jesus Creed when we begin to face God. Sometimes, like Adam and Eve, we hide our faces from God, hoping God might not find us as God strolls through the garden. We hide from God for all kinds of reasons: Perhaps we did not learn to love well from our parents or family, or perhaps we have experienced or are still in a deeply wounding relationship, or perhaps we are tired and weary from seeking intimacy. Such experiences can turn our face from God. But, facing God heals us and empowers us to become lovers of God and lovers of others.
