LESSON 192-I have a function God would have me fill.

Keys to this Lesson

God’s Will is for us to complete Himself.
We are His sacred Son.
In that, we are created by love and in love.
Love is our function.

Forgiveness is also our function as it brings us back to love.

Jesus says this about forgiveness:
Forgiveness gently looks upon all things unknown in Heaven, sees them disappear, and leaves the world a clean and unmarked slate on which the Word of God can now replace the senseless symbols written there before.

Forgiveness helps us to see our holiness again.
Forgivness restores our peace.
Forgiveness is the light that leads us Home.

This lesson is also the lesson that gives us the image of the jailer and the prisoner. The jailer is imprisoned just as much as the prisoner because the jailer must keep watch 24/7. In this the jailer is no more free than the prisoner.

Jesus tells us to hold no one prisoner.
Release instead of bind because then we are free.

We are also asked to be merciful today.
Our function is simply to forgive.
It bears repeating over and over.

Take this thought with you throughout the day.


Since you’re here… …we have a small favor to ask. More people are reading our posts, listening to our audios and watching our videos than ever before but far fewer are donating for it. As an all-volunteer ministry, you can see why we need to ask for your help. MiraclesOne provides ACIM resources freely however it takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe in encouraging others to practically apply the Course principles in their lives – because it might just make the one difference in your life. If everyone who reads, listens or watches and likes what we offer helps to pay for it we can continue to afford our expenses and keep our resources FREE to all ACIM Students. Monthly Donors receive free gifts in appreciation for their support.
