I like thinking a lot about the Christ-spirit and presence that Jesus embodied. It was this Christly-power and authority that enabled him to still storms, walk through mobs unharmed, calm sickness and fear, and provide abundance in the face of lack.
This Christ-spirit and presence is still here within each of us.
It enables us to:
- Choose love instead of anger
- Peace instead of stress
- Stillness instead of busyness
- Have courage in the face of fear
- Spiritual conviction in the face of doubt
- Strength in moments of weakness
- Healing in the face of disease
This Christ-presence comes to each of us when we need it. It lightens the darkness, brings healing, and shows us God’s gracious love for us.
Welcome the Christ-spirit into your consciousness this Christmas and everyday!
I love to observe Christmas in quietude, humility, benevolence, charity, letting good will towards man, eloquent silence, prayer, and praise express my conception of Truth’s appearing. (Mary Baker Eddy, What Christmas Means To Me)
