Review: “I am not a body. I am free. For I am still as God created me.”
“Salvation of the world depends on me.”
I will not see the world as free until I see myself as free. That is why salvation of the world depends on me. To be free means to be without limit. God’s gifts are given without limit and so His gifts are the gift of freedom.
To know His gifts I must give them as they were given, freely and without limit. If I try to be selective about who will receive my gifts, I have lost awareness of What I am as God created me. God created me limitless and free. I cannot limit my gifts without also limiting myself.
I was created as Love, which by Its nature gives without limit. I cannot know the Love I am if I believe some are more worthy of Love than others. If I believe withholding love in certain situations is justified, then I have forgotten what Love is and What I am. Where God would have His gifts be is everywhere, because He is limitless. That is why it is important for me to extend Love all the time to all. That is how I save the world and myself.
Today I ask the Holy Spirit to help me see with His vision and offer Love in every circumstance so I may remember I am not a body I am free. I am still as God created me.
As an extension of God’s Love, we have one function, and that function is to extend God’s universal Love as our Father does. Our function is not to try to change Love, but to be one with It.
In Lesson 186 Jesus tells us, “If God’s Voice assures you that salvation needs your part, and that the whole depends on you, be sure that it is so…. Yet are the humble free to hear the Voice Which tells them what they are, and what to do.” (5:4,6)
We are learning we cannot fail when we ask only for God’s Will for us. God’s Will for us is shared by everyone. We are all in the same boat together. We are all Love and nothing else. We all are the salvation of the world as we wake up to the eternal truth.
