“You didn’t choose me, remember; I chose you, and put you in the world to bear fruit, fruit that won’t spoil. As fruit bearers, whatever you ask the Father in relation to me, he gives you. But remember the root command: Love one another.” (John 15: 16-17, Message Bible)
We are chosen by God, called by the voice of Truth to bear witness to His glory and His goodness. And we have heard this divine beckoning and responded with gratitude and joy in knowing that we are one with God and that He is good. We have received the blessing and we can’t give it back or lose it.
Our mission is to bring to the world, through our thinking and through our lives, this healing word for all. We can do this because we are under divine authority. We are the sure representatives, the emissaries to God’s purpose, and therefore we have His own power behind us to carry this purpose out. His intention is that infinite Life, Truth, and Love be known in earth as it is in heaven—that all creation shall become conscious of its true harmony.
The power we have comes from our loyalty. We are empowered and protected by divine authority as we abide by the “root command.” Without this, we are not obedient and we can’t bear fruit on our own. The divine and necessary mandate is that we love one another. Without love for each other and for all, we can’t possibly do God’s work well and live as the blessed blessing that we are. God is Love and this is the Truth that is productive, active, all-powerful, saving, and healing.
