What is the Last Judgment?
Our special theme says, “Salvation asks you give it welcome. And the world awaits your glad acceptance, which will set it free.”
In the last two days, I have written about duality as a pendulum. I wrote about how the pendulum swings from good/acceptable to bad/unacceptable. In truth, the pendulum is in both positions simultaneously. While it is in the good position for some individuals, it is also in the bad position for others at the exact same time. You might have realized that as you watched the video in yesterday’s tip.
When the pendulum is in the good position for us, it is difficult to truly consider how bad things can be for others. It is also difficult for us to consider others with the same emphasis that we put on ourselves.
Let’s look at one of Jesus’ teachings from the Bible:
Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments. (Matthew 22:34-40)
Please contemplate this scripture in light of the video from yesterday along with today’s tip. What clarity comes to you? What has this clarity got to do with you?
I follow in the way appointed me.
Today’s lesson says, “I have a special place to fill; a role for me alone. Salvation waits until I take this part as what I choose to do. Until I make this choice, I am the slave of time and human destiny.”
After contemplating Matthew 22:34-40, please contemplate today’s workbook lesson in light of your biblical contemplation from yesterday and today. What is your role in salvation?
Also, continue the practice from the last several days of looking at judgments, inquiring into them, remembering what you truly want, and letting them go.
