II.  SECTION 14. What am I?

Lesson 359 God’s answer is some form of peace.  All pain is healed; all misery replaced with joy.  All prison doors are opened.  And all sin is understood as merely a mistake.

  1. Father, today we will forgive Your world, and let creation be Your Own.  We have misunderstood all things.  But we have not made sinners of the holy Sons of God.  What You created sinless so abides forever and forever.  Such are we.  And we rejoice to learn that we have made mistakes which have no real effects on us.  Sin is impossible, and on this fact forgiveness rests upon a certain base more solid than the shadow world we see.  Help us forgive, for we would be redeemed.  Help us forgive, for we would be at peace.[1]

Christ has come!  In Christ we are healed.  Our hope eternal, He transforms our darkened minds with His mind full of light and truth.  We make sinners no more of God’s holy Sons.  God’s Sons are condemned no longer for our mistakes do not define us.  We are as God created us, pure and innocent and eternal. 

We rejoice in Christmas for with the coming of Christ, we accept our Sonship, we remember who we are and what we are.  This shadow world can no longer tempt us to see ourselves as flesh and blood, caught up in cycles of violence and abuse, blame and condemnation.  We forgive the world the separation, the illusion, the unnecessary drama, conflict, and despair.  We choose God’s World when we forgive this world.  We are redeemed!  We are at peace.   

May the love and joy and peace of Christmas fill our hearts today!
