Eckardtesian Thought: I think, therefore I write . . .
The way Jesus healed the deaf man is informative, for he also took each of us aside from the multitude, in Baptism, and water from his mouth, that is, the waters of Baptism made holy by his word, have been applied to us, and the sigh of Jesus is his Spirit, which he breathed out. But the Spirit proceeds also from the Father, indicated by Jesus' look up into heaven. And he spoke, for with his Spirit is always his word, and his word opens our ears and minds to hear and believe the truth of his holy word, and we, like the man here, speak plainly. No longer let us lie and deceive, but speak plainly as the Spirit has given us this ability. So we confess this most holy faith and live by it. Sermon for Trinity XII. The video is here.
