Let’s Be Ministers of Love Today

…we will observe our trust as ministers of God, in hourly remembrance of our mission and His Love. ²And we will quietly sit by and wait on Him and listen to His Voice, and learn what He would have us do the hour that is yet to come; while thanking Him for all the gifts He gave us in the one gone by.

In time, with practice, you will never cease to think of Him, and hear His loving Voice guiding your footsteps into quiet ways, where you will walk in true defenselessness.

Today our theme is our defenselessness. ²We clothe ourselves in it, as we prepare to meet the day. ³We rise up strong in Christ, and let our weakness disappear, as we remember that His strength abides in us. ⁴We will remind ourselves that He remains beside us through the day, and never leaves our weakness unsupported by His strength. ⁵We call upon His strength each time we feel the threat of our defenses undermine our certainty of purpose. ⁶We will pause a moment, as He tells us, ‘I am here.’

⁴The ministers of God can never fail, because the love and strength and peace that shine from them to all their brothers come from Him. ⁵These are His gifts to you. ⁶Defenselessness is all you need to give Him in return. ⁷You lay aside but what was never real, to look on Christ and see His sinlessness. (A Course in Miracles, W-153.171-18:1;19;20:4-7. See also ACIM Lesson 153 Insights.)

Judgment is a key ego tool to defend against the oneness of God’s Love. From birth in the world we are carefully taught to judge everything. We learn to categorize and prioritize so that we know how to protect ourselves and survive in a dangerous world. All this reinforces the belief that we are alone, separate and subject to outside influences beyond our control.

As we relinquish our habit of judging based upon past learning and accept the Holy Spirit’s judgment on our behalf, our defenses are laid down. The Holy Spirit’s judgment is very simple—if it’s God’s Love it is real. Everything else is unreal.

As we learn to accept that the images of the world cannot be real because they represent separation which denies Love, we forgive the world. Our vision is cleared and we see the presence of Love everywhere, in everyone. There can be no judgment in defenselessness, for in our recognition that only Love is real, there is nothing left to judge. Today let us be ministers of Love.
