An Aside

What comes into our minds when we think about God is largely demonstrative of who we are and where we are. While all of life is theological, it is what God thinks - not what you think - that’s most important. Therefore, being a follower of Christ and sitting, walking, and standing with Him are the fundamental ways in which one might begin to think about Him rightly. Orthodox theology cannot be separated from living the Christian life under the Lordship of Christ. It is illegitimate to separate theology from being a Christian, therefore the wisdom of Christ is possible, if still elusive, only for those who are in Christ. Theology, properly defined, is knowing God in the relational sense; this is only possible if He knows you.
