Leave Your Mark of Love & Peace Whereever You Go
Have you ever wondered, if you’re time on this Earth ended tomorrow, what is the legacy that you leave behind? Many people quote the saying “Live each day, as if it were last….” What does this mean to you?
I think many people seem to forget that each new day given to us to live, is a gift. While some focus on major campaigns to take on for causes of this earth….we fail to realize that we are to live our life investing in the lives, we encounter, daily. The life of Jesus Christ truly did demonstrate this. Whereever Jesus walked on this Earth, He left His Mark of Love and Peace. Through His Love, He has healed many through the many miracles He performed. Through His Forgiveness, He has healed many souls that were lost. Those who were punished and outcasted by Manmade Laws; Jesus Christ showed that God’s Forgiveness is endless…through Divine Laws.
Today I was thinking about, how much do people today invest of themselves to another human life? I see a lot of people investing earthly money on humans….but that investment goes away very quickly; it lasts only for a moment. Investment of the self, can last for a lifetime…change a life….bring someone hope; when hope seems to be gone in their worlds. Bring gifts of love and understanding, to those who have never had that.
I’ve been blessed to have encountered so many people in my life…to give of themselves continuously “to the point that it hurts”. Those who do not understand such a love, will see such people who love to the point of sacrificing themselves, as them bringing misery and pain upon themselves. In reality, those that demonstrate such a love, is inspired by the Father of Creation, and does not see it as a sacrifice at all. It only brings them joy, in being able to serve God in such a manner. Unconditional Love, which can only come from a Divine Source, can demonstrate such a trait. Leaving their traces and thumbprints behind…even after years of having left one’s life. Such love will only need to be felt ONCE in one’s life, and leave them yearning for more, once it’s source disappears. We should always serve as beacons of such unconditional love.
Even after thousands of years after Jesus Christ had left this earth in His Physical Form; there are many still yearning for His TRUE Unconditional Love…having felt it in different moments of their life. The Truth of such love is undeniable even by the coldest of hearts. In fact the coldest of hearts only fear such love. I think, IRONICALLY, Napolean said it best, when he said, the following:
“Jesus alone founded His empire upon love, and to this very day millions will die for Him…. I think I understand something of human nature; and I tell you, all these were men, and I am a man: none else is like Him; Jesus Christ was more than man…. I have inspired multitudes with such an enthusiastic devotion that they would have died for me…. but to do this it was necessary that I should be visibly present with the electric influence of my looks, my words, of my voice. When I saw men and spoke to them, I lighted up the flame of self-devotion in their hearts…. Christ alone has succeeded in so raising the mind of man toward the unseen, that it becomes insensible to the barriers of time and space. Across a chasm of eighteen hundred years, Jesus Christ makes a demand which is beyond all others to satisfy; He asks for that which a philosopher may seek in vain at the hands of his friends, or a father of his children, or a bride of her spouse, or a man of his brother. He asks for the human heart; He will have it entirely to Himself. He demands it unconditionally; and forthwith His demand is granted. Wonderful! In defiance of time and space, the soul of man, with all its powers and faculties, becomes an annexation to the empire of Christ. All who sincerely believe in Him, experience that remarkable, supernatural love toward Him. This phenomenon is accountable; it is altogether beyond the scope of man’s creative powers. Time, the great destroyer, is powerless to extinguish this sacred flame; time can neither exhaust its strength nor put a limit to its range. This is it, which strikes me most; I have often thought of it. This is which proves to me quite convincingly the Divinity of Jesus Christ.”
–Liddon’s Bampton Lectures
Unconditional Love from a Divine Source…IS undeniable even by the most coldest of hearts. In fact, it is beyond any human logic or understanding. It breaks all boundaries in the physical and earthly sense; and defies all time. LEAVE YOUR MARK OF LOVE AND PEACE WHEREEVER YOU GO; just as Jesus did.
