Christ is God's Son as He created Him. He is the Self we share, uniting us with one another,

and with God as well. He is the Thought Which still abides within the Mind that is His Source.

He has not left His Holy home, nor lost the innocence in which He was created. He abides

unchanged forever in the Mind of God.

Christ is the link that keeps you one with God, and guarantees that separation is no more than

an illusion of despair, for hope forever will abide in Him. Your mind is part of His, and His of

yours. He is the part in which God's Answer lies; where all decisions are already made, and

dreams are over. He remains untouched by anything the body's eyes perceive. For though in

Him His Father placed the means for your salvation, yet does He remain the Self Who, like

His Father, knows no sin.

Home of the Holy Spirit, and at home in God alone, does Christ remain at peace within the

Heavens of your holy mind. This is the only part of you that has reality in truth. The rest is

dreams. Yet will these dreams be given unto Christ, to fade before His glory and reveal your

holy Self, the Christ, to you at last.

The Holy Spirit reaches from the Christ in you to all your dreams, and bids the come to Him, to

be translated into truth. He will exchange them for the final dream which God appointed as

the end of dreams. For when forgiveness rests upon the world and peace has come to every

Son of God, what could there be to keep things separate, for what remains to see except

Christ's face?

And how long will this holy face be seen, when it is but the symbol that the time for learning

now is over, and the goal of the Atonement has been reached at last? So, therefore let us

seek to find Christ's face and look on nothing else. As we behold His glory, will we know we

have no need of learning or perception or of time, or anything except the holy Self, the Christ

Whom God created as His Son.

Heirs With Christ

Romans 8:12-18

How often Do You Think of Yourself as an heir of God? It's not usually the first thing that comes to mind as we consider the blessings that are ours when we accept Jesus Christ as Savior.

Perhaps this is because we don't really know what it means to be God's heir. Nor can we begin to comprehend what awaits us in eternity or when that will be.

Being an heir is usually associated with family ties, and the same is true of our relationship to God. When we were born again by His Spirit, we became His adopted children, and as such, we are heirs along with Christ. In Cololssians 1:15, Jesus is called "the firtborn of all creaton."

In the ancient world, the firstborn son had a place of prominence in the family and was the chief heir of all that his father owned. In the same way, Jesus Christ holds the position of firstborn and is the heir of all creation.

What's truly amazing is that He has promised to share His inheritance with us. When He returns in glory to take up His Rightful place as King of kings on earth, we will rule with Him, under His authority (Rev. 2:26-27).

The Christian life is filled with undeserved favor. What we experience now of God's grace is only the tip of the iceberg.

Realizing all that Christ has done and will do for His followers should prompt us to live for Him today. The Holy Spirit dwells within us, empowering us to put to death our fleshly desires and to follow God in obedience, even when it's costly. Anything we suffer here for Christ's sake is insignificant compared to the glory that awaits us.
