Resumen

WOOLDRIDGE, Darryl. Drive for the divine. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2015, vol.71, n.3, pp.01-08. ISSN 2072-8050.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/hts.v71i3.2997.

Although the present article stands alone, it is a continuation of 'Living in the not-yet' (published in vol. 71, issue 1 of HTS). Both articles are derivatives of a larger study that discusses God as the centre of an often inarticulate and inchoate but innate human desire and pursuit to enjoy and reflect the divine image (imago Dei) in which every human being was created. The current article sets forth foundational considerations and speaks to the ineffaceable drive within humans to find God. It is a reciprocated drive - a response to God who first sought and continues to seek humans - a correlate and concomitant seeking in response to God. Although surely not the final word, this article discusses God as spirit and spiritual, by whom human beings have been created as imago Dei or God's self-address, showing God's heart as toward his creation, and humans most especially. Also discussed here is that humans are destined to join the perichoretic relationship that God has enjoyed from eternity. Moreover, in his ascension and glory, Jesus sends the Spirit of adoption into creation so that human creation might enter this same perichoretic relationship with God.
