I am the light of the world,
Love is my only function,
That is why I am here
Unity and A Course in Miracles (ACIM) have been linked for many years, with many Unity people finding much joy and support in both practices. This expression is another example of the two coming together.
One of our Unity students in fact, recently shared this during a study class, as something everyone in their Unity Church says each week. It is a beautiful reminder of who we are and why we are here.
In Scripture, we read of Jesus saying to the people around him,
“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” (John 8:12)
For students in Unity, Jesus is our guide – the example for all of us to follow. In our language, we say that Jesus was portraying, living, the Christ energy as his Truth – the full embodiment of God working through him. Thus, as Jesus is our example, when we follow the teachings and ministry of Jesus, we too, can embody God. We, too, become the ‘hands, voice and feet of God on earth.’ It is a calling for every one of us to hear and respond to, wherever we are and whatever our life experiences.
Right where you are, can you say these words and mean them as your truth? Speak them aloud to yourself now. Say them with faith, authority and joy. For I would say to you, that is why you are here.
