How to Be a Messenger of Love

[The Holy Spirit] Who has received for you the messages of God would have them be received by you as well. For thus do you identify with Him and claim your own.

It is this joining [with Holy Spirit] that we undertake to recognize today. We will not seek to keep our minds apart from Him Who speaks for us, for it is but our voice we hear as we attend Him. He alone can speak to us and for us, joining in one Voice the getting and the giving of God’s Word; the giving and receiving of His Will.

The world recedes as we light up our minds, and realize these holy words are true. They are the message sent to us today from our Creator. Now we demonstrate how they have changed our minds about ourselves, and what our function is. For as we prove that we accept no will we do not share, our many gifts from our Creator will spring to our sight and leap into our hands, and we will recognize what we received. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 154, W-pI.154.9:5-10:3;14. See also ACIM Lesson 154 Insights.)

We become a messenger of Love by accepting Holy Spirit’s guidance in our doing in the world. We need to redirect our attention from the ego’s mind set to listening within for the Holy Spirit’s [healing] inspiration. As we make the Holy Spirit our chosen Guide, He teaches us to be Love’s expression in the world.

It can appear as a smile as we pass by a stranger. It may be sharing a helpful idea for someone who has asked for help or it may be simply recognizing the truth of Love in our brother, with no overt form of demonstration. No matter what the circumstance,  the Holy Spirit first brings us to feel the Love of God within and express it in a form that is most helpful in the world.

This is what forgiveness does. By letting go of judgment, it opens the doors for Love to freely extend. By accepting the Love within and offering it to the world, we become messengers of Love.
