Miracles Lesson 186: “Salvation of the world depends on me.”
This lesson explains, ‘Here is the statement that will one day take all arrogance away from every mind…And if He deems us worthy, so are we. It is but arrogance that judges otherwise. The salvation of the world depends on you, who can forgive. Such is your function here.”
The Course repeatedly explains that we need to be the ones to save the world.
Many standard Christian religions I know say that God heals the world, not me or others. These regions say that it is arrogant to say that we are the ones who need to save the world, and they would call that blasphemous. So I love the Course’s wisdom that we must all play our parts in saving the world.
The Course says it is arrogant for us not to save the world and not to offer miracles in the form of forgiveness.
God, in the Course, says that we are entirely worthy and sinless because we can not sin; therefore, there is no guilt. God does not consider us sinners, and we have no faults because God loves us so much, and this is His will to feel this way about us and treat us this way.
The Course says that God is fine when we make mistakes, we never lose our favor from God, and this is huge that we never fall from grace with God. It is arrogant to not believe in our worth because God declared it, and therefore it is true. We forget.
The Course says that since God does not get angry or take His favor from us in the world, we need to accept that we have His approval all the time. To save the world, all we need to do is forgive the world. Forgiveness is the form of Love that God made for the world, so we can take it there and apply it to e everything as forms of miracles, and as a result, our minds heal all problems in the world. We must remember that they are calls for Love and not getting upset about the world. We need to forgive the world and feel so much better when we do.
