The origins of the word seek, help us to remember that slowing down across a period, like the 40 days prescribed for this journey together, helps create space, to ignite our senses once again. This study is a reminder that He calls us both the seeker and His friend.
The seeking is the conscious effort to surrender in our everyday lives in the natural means to God himself—to constantly set our minds toward God in all our experiences, to direct our minds and hearts toward him. Our friendship with God means that no matter what we do, we cannot make Him love us more or any less, friendship is about being. A relationship with God that is marked with unity, a walk together of surrender, that is very much like the Easter story.
