Friday, Fifth Week of Lent

I find and found when I heard this today a passage that impressed me hugely. Belief in Christ is tempered by our inability to think that one obscure man can indeed be God, the Creator of the Universe. But listen to today’s Gospel:

“Is it not written in your law, I said, you are Gods? So the law used the word Gods of those to whom the word of God was addressed. And scripture cannot be rejected.” (John 10,31:2,2)

So here Jesus is saying to his listeners, we are all gods. I find this reassuring. We are all part of God, are in this sense God. Or have I misunderstood? I have an uneasy feeling this may be another thought of mine that may not be quite orthodox. I am not a consecrated person. We are all priests.
