The fundamental truth about us is that we are pure because God within us makes it so. When we surrender our human nature to Christ Spirit we are re-born in to what we have always been. We are free to choose freedom!All we need is "Love"
1 John 3:1-3
1 You must see what great love the Father has lavished on us by letting us be called God's children -- which is what we are! The reason why the world does not acknowledge us is that it did not acknowledge him.
2 My dear friends, we are already God's children, but what we shall be in the future has not yet been revealed. We are well aware that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he really is.
3 Whoever treasures this hope of him purifies himself, to be as pure as he is.
The outside world reflects what is inside. The more we release the blocks we may cling to on the inside the more the beauty of the real world is held in view. Embrace the grace and God blesses us with clear Christ vision.
Lesson 189 (acim-paragraph-5-6)
I feel the Love of God within me now.
What would you see? The choice is given you. But learn and do not let your mind forget this law of seeing: You will look upon that which you feel within. If hatred finds a place within your heart, you will perceive a fearful world, held cruelly in death's sharp-pointed, bony fingers. If you feel the Love of God within you, you will look out on a world of mercy and of love.
Today we pass illusions, as we seek to reach to what is true in us, and feel its all-embracing tenderness, its Love which knows us perfect as itself, its sight which is the gift its Love bestows on us. We learn the way today. It is as sure as Love itself, to which it carries us. For its simplicity avoids the snares the foolish convolutions of the world's apparent reasoning but serve to hide.
John 1:14And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.
To judge is to condem, and to discern is wisdom. Judgment always has an emotional charge and an agenda-(someone one-or thing is wrong and needs correction). Well that takes energy to judge and it closes the heart to love. Within every human being is the deep desire to be loved and to love, and this comes from God that placed in us the truth (Christ).
A shift in our perception from dark to light offers healing to our brothers and sisters everywhere. When we look beyond someone's mistakes and see Christ in the hearts of all men and women we uplift and bless the world and everyone in it. What joy it is to bring joy and offer that instead of judgments that merely drag everything down. Jesus is the light of the world that dispels all shadows and His Christ Spirit lives within every man/women/child. May we remind others about the truth of love that saves the world.
"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places,"
When we fully know and experience who we are in God all ego illusions flee as if they never existed in the first place. And indeed they were merely shadows which amount to nothing (no-thing) as is an idol. We return Home to love when we accept the love we "are"
4 But God, being rich in faithful love, through the great love with which he loved us,
5 even when we were dead in our sins, brought us to life with Christ -- it is through grace that you have been saved-
6 and raised us up with him and gave us a place with him in heaven, in Christ Jesus.
7 This was to show for all ages to come, through his goodness towards us in Christ Jesus, how extraordinarily rich he is in grace.
8 Because it is by grace that you have been saved, through faith; not by anything of your own, but by a gift from God;
9 not by anything that you have done, so that nobody can claim the credit.
10 We are God's work of art, created in Christ Jesus for the good works which God has already designated to make up our way of life.
Christ is for "all" and always. Our human race fell into despair and delusion by our own hand (choices). Christ reflects to us what we are and our original goodness. Christ "IS" the purest and perfect representation of what "Our true image" has always been~Amen.
"Jesus Christ became Incarnate for one purpose, to make a way back to God that man might stand before Him as He was created to do, the friend and lover of God Himself."
The lips will speak what the heart is full of. What is truly in our hearts? Have we stored up treasures in the heart of love? Holding any resentments/anger/judgments? When we decide to change our ways God's Holy Spirit transform us (Roman 12:2)
Let us sow seeds into the Lords Kingdom~Amen!
19 'Do not store up treasures for yourselves on earth, where moth and woodworm destroy them and thieves can break in and steal.
20 But store up treasures for yourselves in heaven, where neither moth nor woodworm destroys them and thieves cannot break in and steal.
21 For wherever your treasure is, there will your heart be too.
