The Name of Jesus

“The name of Jesus is the name of one who was a man but saw the face of Christ in all his brothers and remembered God.  So he became identified with Christ, a man no longer, but at one with God.  (M87)”

Affirmation:  “May I see the face of Christ in all my brothers and sisters.”

Reflections:

This passage explains the true role of Jesus as the Christ.  Elsewhere, repeatedly, Jesus in the Course refers to himself as our brother, our elder brother, who has walked the whole pathway, and who stands at the end to help us when we fail to walk the whole pathway.  He will assist us.  We do not have to feel alone.

All of us are eventually to reach Christ consciousness (an interpretation, not spelled out in the Course).  Then we will surely understand what Jesus has been trying to tell us.

When we see the face of Christ in all our brothers and sisters, we will know that we have made much progress.  Seeing the face of Christ in our brothers and sisters is a prerequisite to finding our way Home.

Prayer:

Dear Father/Mother,

May I recognize the face of Christ in all of those people who surround me, my brothers and sisters.  May I come to understand exactly what this means.  I realize that I do not have to understand to recognize when this miracle is happening.

Thank You for leading me farther along the pathway to You and to Christ consciousness.  May I prove worthy in my dealings with all whom I encounter.

Amen.
