samaritean-bloodGOD ONLY HAS US.  

There is a church in Rome with a statue of a Christ without arms. When you ask why, you are told that it shows how God relies on us, His human partners, to do His work for Him. Without us, God has no eyes; without us God has no ears, without us God has no arms. God waits upon us, and relies on us. God can do nothing until we provide Him with the means, the bread and the fish, to feed the hungry. When a person is naked, God wants to perform the miracle of clothing that person, but it won't be with an outfit floating from heaven. No, it will be because you and I, all of us, have agreed to be God's fellow workers, providing Him with the raw material for performing miracles.

Our divine-partnership is recounted throughout the Bible. God reassure Jeremiah: "Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you". God was declaring to Jeremiah that long before he was an idea in his father's or mother's head, He knew him. Jeremiah was not divine afterthought; he was part of the divine plan for all eternity. He was no accident. None of us is a divine afterthought. God has chosen us from all eternity to be an indispensable part of His divine plan... (Desmond Tutu)
