I read and meditate on several Bible passages each day. I believe in the Trinity as promised. There is only one god! Therefore, God blesses all people. . . all people! God makes no distinctions. Jesus sent his disciples into the world to proclaim the glory of God. He did not say eliminate certain groups of people. Jesus wanted all people to hear the good news, what we call The Gospel.
Couple this with what we learn from the Wisdom of God, the Wisdom of the Holy Spirit, and the Wisdom taught by Jesus, we know that to serve God is to offer Wisdom to all people, to keep our hearts open to this Wisdom as we share it, as disciples of Jesus. God created Wisdom as part of His holy creation of which we are an essential part. He did not say that creation is available only to Christians, but to all peoples, regardless of what name they give God.
My life is blessed every morning I awaken to a new sun, a new creation, for each new day is a new creation in my life. I pray that my words and deeds will glorify God as Jesus taught me. I embrace this truth with all of my being, my mind, my heart, and my soul. I embrace this as a necessity, because if I do not, I am not living up to the life that God wants of me. I depend on God to help me do this and God depends on me to continue spreading his love to all people regardless of what church, synagogue, or temple they attend on their holy day.
My prayer for the day:
Heavenly Father, allow me and all people in your creation to follow the Wisdom you have taught us through the words of Jesus and the many other prophets we learned of from your teachings, whether they be in the Old and New Testaments, the Qur’an, or the many other spiritual books studied and prayed over all around our small planet.
