Undoing the Way We See Things Now
The Light of the World Brings Peace to Every Mind Through My Forgiveness.
How holy are you who have the power to bring peace to every mind! How blessed are you who can learn to recognize the means for letting this be done through you! What function would you want but this? What purpose could you have that would bring you greater happiness?
2. You are indeed the light of the world with such a function. The Son of God looks to you for his redemption. It is yours to give him, for it belongs to you. Accept no trivial purpose or meaningless desire in its place, or you will forget your purpose and leave God’s Son in hell. This is no idle request that is being asked of you. You are asked to accept salvation that it may be yours to give.
3. Recognizing the importance of this function, we will be happy to remember it very often today. We will begin the day by acknowledging it, and close the day with the thought of it in our awareness. And throughout the day, we will repeat this as often as we can:
The light of the world brings peace to every mind through my forgiveness.
I am the means God has appointed for the salvation of the world.
4. You will probably find it easier to let related thoughts come to you in the minute or two you should devote to considering this if you can close your eyes. However, do not wait for such an opportunity. No chance should be lost for reinforcing today’s idea. Remember that God’s Son looks to you for his salvation. And who but your Self must be His Son.
The light of the world brings peace to every mind through forgiveness. I am the means God has appointed for the salvation of the world. I closed my eyes to consider this proclamation and talk it over with God. He showed me how I have always looked on this idea like a pretty picture in a book or on a movie screen that was so beautiful, but in my mind it appeared as something magical, mystical, unattainable, like a beautiful dream I could not touch or physically be a part of till the “sweet by and by” but deep in my heart I truly believed it to be possible. Thank you Jesus, thank you Holy Spirit for leading me to this Course, to light my way, guiding and directing me to Truth. I ask my Heavenly Father to help me not to fall into any kind of deception of trivial, meaningless purpose, but to replace my illusions with True identity and purpose that would lead me to not forget my function. I definitely recognize the importance of this function being at the top of my priority list with all thanks, praise, honor, glory to my Heavenly Father, Jesus, and Holy Spirit. Oh how all of creation is so desperately crying out for the Love Light of Jesus to shine upon them, on us, to bring Peace, Love, Joy, Unity through my forgiveness, through your forgiveness. There is all this Beauty, Abundance, Love, Peace, Joy, just hanging out in front of us trying to break forth. Please lets all do our part in being very generous in our giving of forgiveness that is so freely received, which in-turn encourages each other to enter in. I pray for all my brothers, sisters and myself, for continued guidance, wisdom, discernment, protection, and illumination of purpose in The Way, The Truth, The Life in Christ Jesus, Amen. Thank you for sharing with me. Walk in Love my friend!
