2021-03-17. Faith Gives the Go-Ahead, Truth Sets the Course
Wednesday, March 17, 2021
“Jesus laid great emphasis upon what he called the two truths of first import in the teachings of the kingdom, and they are: the attainment of salvation by faith, and faith alone, associated with the revolutionary teaching of the attainment of human liberty through the sincere recognition of truth . . .” [UB, 141:7.6]
Thought Adjuster: “Salvation by faith is the first liberating truth proclaimed by Jesus. As soon as human beings own up to their sonship status in the extended family of God and become aware of His open-door policy, the heavy emotional weight of anguish and anxiety subsides.
In the animal kingdom, biologists observed the survival of the fittest specimens at the expense of the weakest ones. Such is not the case in the spiritual realm. Just as light pierces through a tiny crack in a wall, a flicker of faith suffices as credentials to let you cross the border leading to the kingdom of the hearts, issuing you a lifetime pass to eternity.
Faith places you at the starting gate of your eternal voyage. How do you move on from there toward Destination Paradise? One step at a time, taken under the reliable guidance of truth. Ironically, truth is All-That-Is—hiding in plain sight. Jesus enjoined humankind to engage on a personal quest for liberating, incontestable gems of truth. He laid the groundwork by disclosing many practical truths on a need-to-know basis. By enacting them, he provided first-hand corroboration through his living PowerPoint presentation.
Having faith in his guidance is a vote of confidence in and by itself. He most certainly is the worthiest recipient of your trust, as all his decisions were faith-driven and truth-based. His inspirational lifestyle and cheerful demeanor are other telltales that he succeeded in restoring the tenants of truth on your world and beyond.”
