In every moment, we make a decision, consciously or subconsciously, as to whether we will open our hearts. With this lesson, we recognize that the decision we make affects more than just ourselves.
On my decision all salvation rests.
Father, Your trust in me has been so great, I must be worthy. You created me, and know me as I am. And yet You placed Your Son's salvation in my hands, and let it rest on my decision. I must be beloved of You indeed. And I must be steadfast in holiness as well, that You would give Your Son to me in certainty that he is safe Who still is part of You, and yet is mine, because He is my Self.
And so, again today, we pause to think how much our Father loves us. And how dear His Son, created by His Love, remains to Him Whose Love is made complete in him.
Quote of the Day
"Our barriers to love are rarely consciously chosen. They are our efforts to protect the places where the heart is bruised."
