For a while I thought that the people in the “School of Right Thinking” had the total story, that Jesus was telling us the value of the power of our thoughts and which I still believe is very much a part of His Message which has gotten garbled. Yes, Jesus did stress that we are what we think, in so many words, and yes the Bible tells many stories of Jesus teaching of moral values, which have become the core of most traditional religious thought and creed.
But wait, says Jesus, there’s more! After I have left you, God will send a comforter, a gift of wisdom, truth and peace that will fill your heart with joy. The Kingdom of God is at hand. Love God your Father. Trust in Him. Have faith in good. See the good in all. Thank God for all. Make your every thought be a prayer of thanksgiving. Ask God to fill you with His grace. My Father is loving and wants to bestow His love into your heart. Love God. Love your brother. Prepare your heart; make a sacred and holy sanctuary in your heart for the Love of God. You can so as I, for the Love of God.
How do you understand the gifts of the Holy Spirit of which Jesus foretold and Paul proclaimed? Do you believe you have been bestowed with this gift of God because of a religious rite or tradition? First of all, it’s not a one-time thing, this gift of Grace; it’s something one has to ask for in supplication daily. “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done.” When you choose by your own power of choice, your free will, to make your own will God’s will, and when the Comforter comes, you will have no doubt. You will have no doubt you are being physically, mentally and spiritually changed. As well as you will acquire a mind of trust; trust in God that leaves no doubt.
Yes, this is the “Good News” for ready and willing hearts. God our Father is so willing, ready and able to bring aide and comfort and He does so by offering daily “downloads” of His Own Substance, Divine Love. This is the pure stuff. 100% Divine Love is what changes the minds and hearts of man making new eyes and ears, eyes to see and ears to hear. The “Good News” is that with the birth of Jesus, whom became the Christ, the world has been offered a new gift. Jesus was the first to proclaim the Christos, but as he said, we could too and would do far greater works than He.
