"You are the light of the world" according to Jesus
YOU are love. This is your truest identity. This is your design. All my resources point to YOU (plural) to co-operate and resonate and participate in LOVE, which is ME, US.
Waking up early on Thursday, April 30, at 5:45am gave me the opportunity to quiet myself and connect relationally to Jesus and listen to Him, actually, to the community of love we call the Trinity; Father, Son and Spirit.
I share this relational interactivity as one possibility. It is my intention to inspire you to participate in this way of connecting to and resonating with Christ in this moment, here and now. It is possible.
My sense that God wants you to know your True Identity. Anything less than this is a common human experience. And, it is a departure from your true core in Christ.
You are the light of the world!
Let your light shine!
I realize this might be new for many of you. I've been practicing some form of listening to Jesus and journaling for years, so, please do not hold yourself to anything others do. But, please do see it as one model and a possibility of a kind of life that interacts with Christ. We will all have a personal style and flavor. Yet, I hope we can imagine possibilities of God's life being poured into you with concrete practices that support this way of living.
Below is this morning's listening to Jesus after I asked him, "Jesus, what do you want me to know?"
I always welcome your response, encouragement, curious questions and wisdom seeking together as a community of practice. We discern if what we sense is from God in community. I share this in community.
Good morning to the God who sees me.
Good morning to the I AM.
Good morning Christ Jesus.
Jesus, What do you want me to know today?
I want you to know that your body is filled and composed with love. It is the energy of love that is my presence with you and your people.
You can see my presence in Jesus inviting people to cooperate with this love. It is an exclusive way that includes all people, invites all people and desires to see all resonate and participate in The Way.
My way is love.
It starts in love. The goal is love and all along the way is love. Love is my only desire, motivation and constraint.
Of course, my love has contours. It has texture. It has sensations. It has flavors.
My love is not bland, but exquisite.
Jesus Christ is the image of my love in motion and so are you.
YOU are love.
This is your truest identity. This is your design.
All my resources point to YOU (plural) to co-operate and resonate and participate in LOVE, which is ME, US.
Go out and teach and train and equip people towards this end.
Give them the vision and the tools that give them traction to live this way.
Remind people that when their RCs are on, they are receiving my love and are operating at the highest frequencies with the greatest power for the greatest good.
When their relational circuits are on, they will know what to do and how to do it. This includes pausing, being still to tune into my Presence and Wisdom for all.
John, my words are substance for your body, mind and soul.
Learn how to find the best substance your soul needs for today and how my substance is prepared, injected and digested.
Today, my substance is You are the light of the world.
Take this in and allow my presence in these words to permeate your being.
Matthew 5:14-16 Common English Bible (CEB)
14 You are the light of the world. A city on top of a hill can’t be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a basket. Instead, they put it on top of a lampstand, and it shines on all who are in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before people, so they can see the good things you do and praise your Father who is in heaven.
Usage: light, a source of light, radiance.
5457 phṓs (a neuter noun) – properly, light (especially in terms of its results, what it manifests); in the NT, the manifestation of God's self-existent life; divine illumination to reveal and impart life, through Christ.
