Claiming God’s Gift of His Glory

The glory of my Father is my own.

Let not the truth about ourselves today be hidden by a false humility. ²Let us instead be thankful for the gifts our Father gave us. ³Can we see in those with whom He shares His glory any trace of sin and guilt? ⁴And can it be that we are not among them, when He loves His Son forever and with perfect constancy, knowing he is as He created him?

We thank You, Father, for the light that shines forever in us. ²And we honor it, because You share it with us. ³We are one, united in this light and one with You, at peace with all creation and ourselves. (A Course in Miracles, W-239.1:1–2:3. See also ACIM Lesson 239 Insights.)

The ego would have us believe that we are despicable, of no value and the only way to rectify this terrible situation is to grab some form of specialness. But its efforts to compensate cannot succeed. The only answer that will truly resolve this seeming problem is to accept the truth in place of the ego’s illusions.

We have not lost our eternal link with our Creator. It is unbreakable. It keeps us united with God’s glory; everything He is, we are. To deny the glory He has given us is arrogant. But to accept His Love is to accept the truth of the glory, peace and joy He shares with us, His Son.

Today we ask the Holy Spirit to help us let go of our mistaken identification with the ego and accept the glory we share with God.
