Our card for today, Thursday, May 12th, is taken from the Loving Words from Jesus Card Deck – “Whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.” (Matthew 12:50)
Jesus came to show us the Way, the way to live our lives as God intended for each and every one of us. He didn’t put Himself above one of His disciples or His followers, no matter if they were rich or poor, or from what country or culture, none of that mattered to Him. Jesus lived His life here on earth to be an example to all of us, whether we are Christian, or Jew, or Buddhist, or Muslim, again none of that mattered to Him. What Jesus saw when He looked at anyone was God inside and it didn’t matter who they were, or what they did, or what they believed in. All Jesus saw was Love.
Love is what He came here to teach us because Love is what we are. We were created in the image of God, and God is only and ever Love, and so therefore we must be Love too as His children. However many of us had lost our way and I’m saying many of us here because we have all had past lives and perhaps even lived a life in the time that Jesus walked this earth. The world back then, and even today, is ruled by power and greed. The world was always meant to be ruled by Love, Love for God and Love for our fellow man. So when Jesus said “whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.” He was talking about loving God and our fellowman as He showed us how to do with His life. That is God’s only will for us.
So many of us have asked the questions “What is my purpose? Why am I here?”, and the only answer of any importance to that question is to BE Love. We are here to extend the Love of God to all life on this planet and to the earth herself. That is why we are constantly reminded to be of service to our fellow man. It doesn’t require grand gestures of giving huge amounts of money to charity, or giving up our lives and becoming a monk, or anything else like that you can think of. All we are asked to do is to BE the Love of God in this world in any way we can. Small acts of kindness, helping our neighbors or strangers, or anything that comes from the Love we are, so that we are doing what Jesus taught us with His own life. As more of us put on the raiment of Love, Love will one day be the force that rules this world. So our purpose in life is to be the Ambassadors of Love!
Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~
