Salvation of the world depends on me.
I accept my function. My function is forgiveness. My function is to love one another. I pause and listen to where His Voice guides me. I release all petty judgment and open my heart to Him. Does mere words matter what I write when it is such a personal experience? It’s up to me because all are me. That is why salvation depends on me. Once I see the purity in one I see it in myself and all. That is what I am called to do this day and everyday. It does not matter what came before, because in this very instant, this holy instant, I can choose again and experience Heaven on earth.
I bless the world because I bless myself.
This lesson is related to the previous lesson. We realize here we only give what we possess within. We may not understand how this works, but it is the outcome. Ideas live in our mind first, so we have to be sure what ideas we hold in our minds are worthy of us as the Son of God. I accept salvation. I accept my role in what I am here to accomplish. When we do this together, it grows exponentially.
What is valuable is the blessing we are. Think about that for moment. You are blessed by God. I am blessed by God. Could anything else be more perfect?
I have no need to sacrifice who I am or play small or disappear into myself. I am proud to say, “I am God’s Son and I am blessed.” It is the wealth and treasure of our spirit. In this, we give away. We will never receive unless we offer it to others, both on the spiritual level and the physical level. If I hold back in any area of my life, I will not receive the rich blessings from giving.
Freedom lies in giving the blessings away as we trust we are carried by God.
