“And so God makes it possible for you and us to stand firmly together with Christ. God is also the one who chose us and put his Spirit in our hearts to show that we belong only to him.” (II Corinthians 1: 21-22, Contemporary English Version)
We can stand together firmly in our purpose, in our mission of life as Love. We can remember that it is not our human knowledge that makes us capable of bringing peace to the world and to ourselves. It is a gift of God. It is grace. It is a holy appointment and backed by divine authority.
You belong to God. This is an exclusive relationship. You don’t belong to material circumstances, to a physical body, or to time. You aren’t owned by a corporation or a nation or another individual. You are God’s chosen. He specifically designed you to be His own very ideal idea, to actively and accurately express His intention.
And this purpose has been put within you. It is Love and it binds you with mankind. So, while you belong to God, you are at one with all His ideas, fellow children of Spirit and of Life, and this is a firm and irreversible commitment. God’s Principle makes no exceptions and it made no mistake in choosing you, in naming you as His very own, the perfect expression of His excellence, activity, intelligence, beauty, and goodness.
