Let’s explore Love together.
How do you perceive God’s love for you?
Do you feel you need to earn it?
Do you wonder if God’s love is meant for you?
Do you see the overflow of God’s love in your own life toward others?
How will you manifest Love this week?
“Little children, let us not love with word or
with tongue, but in deed and truth”
(1 John 3:18).
Let’s explore peace together.
Philippians 4:6–7 tells us, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you,” He told His disciples. “I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid” (John 14:27).
How will you manifest Peace this week?
“You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you” (Isaiah 26:3).
The first Sunday of Advent is the a day of Faith & Hope.
The word advent is a version of a Latin term which means “coming.” So we use these weeks leading up to Christmas as a chance to look forward to our celebration of the arrival of Jesus, our Christ Consciousness, and the light of the world.
How can we purposefully live this season of anticipation in light of hope?
I’d like to suggest it starts with acknowledging the darkness around us, embracing the wait, and committing to the journey.
Here are some quotes to contemplate this week:
Faith is the highest expression of belief or confidence
The idea that faith is something that has to do only with one's religious experience is incorrect. Faith is a faculty of the mind that finds its most perfect expression in the spiritual nature, but in order to bring out one's whole character it should be developed in all its phases (CH 85).
It is when faith is exercised deep in spiritual consciousness that it finds its right place, and under divine law, without variation or disappointment, it brings results that are seemingly miraculous (CH 87).
The power to see in Spirit is peculiar to faith. In its outer expression this power is sight; interiorly it is that which perceives the reality of the substance of Spirit (CH 89).
Anyone who has faith in Spirit and the power of the word spoken in faith can send it forth, and like the radio oscillation, it will be picked up by receptive minds everywhere (ASP 55).
