Seeing Christ

Christ Within

Christ Within

If we see that the world holds Christ within it, everything becomes a whole lot more holy to us... more deserving of respect and reverence...

If Christ lives within me... not only can I love and value myself more... but my thoughts, my words, my actions, are not just my own... but they are also Christ’s...

If other people hold Christ within themselves, they become a lot harder to hate and judge, and easier to love and treat with dignity...

Seeing Christ

Seeing Christ

What if “helping” wasn’t just about meeting other people’s needs – as lofty and beautiful as that is? What if those connections were Christ’s way of meeting us, getting under our skin, getting inside us?

What if it’s true – that Christ is already here… in every act of compassion… in every connection we make? In the stranger, in family, in friend? Even – can I say it? - in ourselves?
