The light of the world brings peace to every mind through my forgiveness.

1. 1How holy are you who have the power to bring peace to every mind! 2How blessed are you who can learn to recognize the means for letting this be done through you! 3What purpose could you have that would bring you greater happiness?

2. 1You are indeed the light of the world with such a function. 2The Son of God looks to you for his redemption. 3It is yours to give him, for it belongs to you. 4Accept no trivial purpose or meaningless desire in its place, or you will forget your function and leave the Son of God in hell. 5This is no idle request that is being asked of you. 6You are being asked to accept salvation that it may be yours to give.

3. 1Recognizing the importance of this function, we will be happy to remember it very often today. 2We will begin the day by ack­nowledging it, and close the day with the thought of it in our awareness. 3And throughout the day we will repeat this as often as we can:

4The light of the world brings peace to every mind through my forgiveness. 5I am the means God has appointed for the salvation of the world.

4. 1If you close your eyes, you will probably find it easier to let the related thoughts come to you in the minute or two that you should devote to considering this. 2Do not, however, wait for such an opportunity. 3No chance should be lost for reinforcing today’s idea. 4Remember that God’s Son looks to you for his sal­vation. 5And Who but your Self must be His Son?
