2 Corinthians 6:2

Behold, now is a very acceptable time; behold, now is the day of salvation.

+++

This is another profound statement by St. Paul.

Salvation doesn’t come on one distant day.

It comes now.

This moment.

Salvation is the deep realization that you are infinitely loved by GodLove itself (“God is love” 1 John 4:8)!

This Love comes regardless of your worthiness.

It connects to your beautiful soul and declares that you are enough!

It makes you whole and complete right now (salvation).

You don’t have to achieve this wholeness.

It’s always there like a perfect diamond at your core.

Sure, you can improve your behaviors in this physical life and achieve accomplishments on a worldly level.

That’s a part of participating in the coming of the kingdom of God, the manifestation of the beloved community right here.

But on a spiritual level – you are already the beloved of God.

You can’t improve on that.

This is so hard for us to grasp!

You came from Love and will return to Love.

When you realize this now…right now…your salvation has come!

St. Paul understood by Grace that as he died to himself (his ego-concocted false self), that he found life to the full (his true self).

He calls on all who wish to share God’s love to pour yourself out, to serve.

What feels like dying will actually be living.

As Paul put it, you will experience being “poor yet enriching many; as having nothing and yet possessing all things” (2 Corinthians 6:10).

Grace is being extended to you right now.

As Paul stated: “We appeal to you not to receive the grace of God in vain” (2 Corinthians 6:1).

Receive it and pass it on!
