Be Changed


Love is a Creative Flow that beckons us to surrender and take part.

Matthew 5:17-18

“Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have come not to abolish but to fulfill. Amen, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or the smallest part of a letter will pass from the law, until all things have taken place.”


These words are not meant to be threatening but comforting.

It is only threatening if you falsely believe in a punishing God.

Remember: God is Love (1 John 4:8).

The law is meant to point us to love…but laws do not change hearts.

Love does.

And Love continues to fuel the Creative Process.

In today’s scripture verses, Jesus wants us to know that God will accomplish all things through Love.

But that could take a long time.

It takes our cooperation…since each of us has free will.

It’ll take lots of mercy and forgiveness to transform this world.

The very place where we come up short is exactly where Love steps in and saves us.

While the world’s transformation could take a while, yours and mine could be just a moment away.

All it takes is consciously awakening to the truth: God is Love and that Love is with us and for us now.

Allow this experience to lift you.

Surrender to it…and then – be this experience to everyone and everything you encounter.
