Jesus lives for all of us. His message remains my most important lesson. It is the simplest message, and it can be the most difficult to learn. Whether we recognize it or not, the Holy Spirit visits with us to confirm this message, this lesson, this Divine Love.
Let me say this first: I love you! It matters not where you live, what shade your complexion is, what religion you practice, or what name you call God. I love you, unconditionally. This is my interpretation of the lessons that Jesus teaches. He even made this the second most important commandment, the first being Love God. When I love, as Jesus taught, I demonstrate and define that Love establishes our divine likeness and divine membership of God’s family.
The Bible reminds me that I need to pay attention to the spiritual side of humanity, not the mortal side for it is only the spiritual that is eternal. This is the lesson of the Word, the Word of God; I pray that you also think this is true. The Word is Wisdom, and Wisdom delivers us from evil to the path of Truth, eternal Truth. . . and Life.
So, I have laid out perfection; I am not perfect, yet. But only Jesus was perfect Man. The Freedom God gives allows me to wander my path of life. I only pray that in my wandering I have come upon the path that leads to true Spirit. The freedom to choose how I meet strangers is my key to God, who has taught me His Will. I did not learn this in slow-minded church; I found this through meditation. I found this by slowing my mind, away from the demands of our very material-oriented society, not giving up as God as God never gives up on me.
I receive God’s Word, God’s Message through daily meditation, daily slowing down, daily recognition that my relations with all whom I meet pleases God. So, I thank the Holy Spirit for being my memory, allowing me to observe and follow only what I need.
