LIVING LOVE: He who has seen me has seen the Father. (John 14:9)
At Christmastime, more so than at any other time, we are called to fulfill the law of Divine Love. If asked what this means, we would probably be told that it means to give of ourselves unselfishly. Today, we will learn what Charles Fillmore taught: it meant to be Living Love. We are to unify ourselves with the Spirit of Love that is within every one of us,we are to become One with God Itself!
LIVING FAITH: Christ in you, the hope of glory. (Colossians 1:27)
We begin this Advent season, this time of preparing for the birth of the Christ Child, with a fresh look at faith. A 105-year-old talk written by Unity co-founder, Charles Fillmore, reminds us that the aim of our existence is to put on the Christ. We might also say it is: bring forth our Christ nature. This work requires a living faith, not a dead thing like the trees we chop down and use as the centerpiece of our Christmas celebrations. How alive is your faith? And what can be done to revive it?
