As Theologian Reinhold Niebuhr shares nothing worth doing is completed in our lifetime; therefore, we are saved by hope. Nothing true or beautiful or good makes complete sense in any immediate context of history; therefore, we are saved by faith. Nothing we do, however virtuous, can be accomplished alone; therefore, we are saved by love. No virtuous act is quite as virtuous from the standpoint of our friend or foe as from our own; therefore, we are saved by the final form of love, which is forgiveness.
You can have faith in love, right now. You can love today like you have never loved before. You can love more in this moment than the next, more than you did yesterday, you can stretch your loving vision and action right now. Life is here for us to enjoy and experience and grow in the present moment, open and full of all the possibilities that are quantum and numinous in each moment.
Love leads us, love guides us and love opens doors into realms within realms.
Allow life's wonderful miracles to flow as we are all saved by love and in loving and sharing that love all things renew in a never ending cycles of growth and rebirth.
In setting the stage for what's ahead in calling on our faithfulness with compassion for ourselves and the loving actions required you will be fueled by exactly what appears.
"We need another standard to measure our actions, and I think that standard is faithfulness." Listen to some expanding thoughts here. Ask the questions. Be in Service. Experience what is.
