An Active Christ

"For God who was at work in the ministry of Peter as an apostle to the Jews was also at work in my ministry as an apostle of the Gentiles." Paul (Galatians, 2:8)

Human vanity always pretentiously maintained the Christ within sectarian religious circles; however, Jesus continues His activities wherever the principle of righteousness flourishes.

Within all the avenues of terrestrial evolution, in sanctuaries and in academies, we see the presence of restless beginners, the false believers, and unfortunate fanatics who light the spark in the bonfire of opinions and maintain them. In spite of this, men of true faith come forth surging as sacred vehicles of the active Christ.

Simon Peter centralized all the Evangelical tasks of the emerging Gospel, readjusting the aspirations of the chosen people.

Paul of Tarsus was a powerful magnet in the renovation of the gentiles.

Through both, the Master expressed Himself with a sole objective: the perfecting of human beings for the Divine Kingdom.

It is now time to recognize the light of those eternal truths.

Jesus continues to work and His infinite mercy is revealed wherever love is erected toward the supreme ideal.

No one should feel victim to the unjust complaints accusing the sincere and devoted disciples of retaining divine privileges. Let each student make every effort to establish the propitious atmosphere on behalf of the manifestations of the Father and His emissaries. Work, study, serve, and help others always, in search of the superior spheres, and you will feel the active Christ, at your side, engaged in everyday activities.
