His Message

Jesus’ message is not: “Don’t do!”, or “Judge and condemn others!” or “Guilt!” or “Shame.”

His message is none of these. It is simple.  It is plain. It is “Love one another, as I love you.”

Saints?

We’re not called to be saints.  We’re called to live knowing that the lives and well-being of others are equally as important as our own life and well-being.  Everyone’s well-being is important.  Everyone’s hearts and minds are important.  Everyone is important.  Everyone. (©, 2012)

Like anyone who struggles through life, we wonder if God is out there helping.  We want signs.  But, will getting signs really do that much for us.  In looking for signs, we have to ask, “What God do we seek?”  Do we seek the God of walking on water or the God of forgiveness?  The God of turning water into wine, or the God of Mercy?  The God of Love, or the God of making fishes and loaves?  Do we seek the God of physical phenomenon, or the God of inner Light and Love.  Oh, sure, they’re the same God.  But when we’ve been shown forgiveness, mercy, love and more, how will seeking for external signs give us what we really want to know deep inside ourselves, when it’s love, forgiveness, mercy, patience, etc that we recognize within our deepest parts of ourselves as being what God is really all about.

Add God

Do we need a reason to love?
What about this reason – because loving adds God to people’s lives in that moment of love.
Do we need a reason to forgive?
What about – because forgiving adds God to people’s lives in that moment of forgiveness.
Do we need a reason to be patient with others?
How about – because being patient with others adds God to people’s lives in that moment of patience.
Do we need a reason?
consider – to add God via love, forgiveness and patience to people’s lives in the moment.

Because in moments of loving, of forgiving, of patience or kindness, or supportive, or encouraging, or merciful, we’re adding God to people’s lives for that moment. God exists in these acts when they come from within us.  All acts of love, bring God into the world during that moment of love.  Where God is, Love is.  Where Love is, God is.  They cannot be separated.  One doesn’t exist in any moment without the other.

Still, we don’t always recognize this to be true.  We can sometimes recognize love to be present in that moment, but rarely do we think God to be present at the same time, as well.

The next time you want to have an experience of God, Love someone.  God shows up when we love.
