2 Thessalonians 3:5

May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the endurance of Christ.


Let me start by stating one of my most quoted scripture verses from the first letter of John, chapter 4, verse 8: God is love.

The vast majority of the people who have had a Near Death Experience also say over and over that they experienced a glorious Light that exuded more love than they could put into words.

If you follow Jesus, you will realize that he personified what it means to be in communion with God; or should I say, in communion with Love itself.

Jesus operated from the heart level.

He showed compassion to those on the margins; to those left out; to the sick and the dying.

When you love those people, you are loving God.

This is what St. Paul prays for in today’s scripture verse.

“May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God.”

If you follow Jesus, he will direct your heart to the love of God.

He will direct you to love all people.

And St. Paul prays that Jesus will also direct your hearts “to the endurance of Christ.”

For Paul, Christ is much bigger than the historical Jesus.

Christ is the Creative Energy of the Cosmos.

This Creative Energy has infinite power.

This Christ is available now for all people to tap into.

It’s coursing through you.

Consciously connect to it by letting go and turning inward.

As Psalm 46, verse 11 states:

“Be still and know that I am God.”

Be still and know that I am.

Be still and know.

Be still.
