Today we recognize Jesus Christ as our greatest teacher, perfectly expressing Divine love in His teachings, His actions and His example. We open to a clearer understanding of the truth He demonstrated --- the truth that we are all One and always will be.
The purpose of atonement is not to placate God into forgiving us, but to forgive ourselves by seeing ourselves from the perspective of God. From the perspective of Divine love, there has never been anything to forgive! The sense of separation between ourselves and the Power of God has been entirely an idea in our own human consciousness and it will dissolve as we are willing to be "at One" with the indwelling Presence of God, the Lord of our Being that Jesus called the Christ.
Jesus bravely, gently and lovingly demonstrated everything we need to know and do in order to reach our own sense of atonement. He showed through His teachings, His actions and His own demonstration that death is simply an illusion and eternal life is our true nature. He showed us the Way, the Truth and the Light and assured us that we could do as He did.
