You Christ, Daily

Serving For Christ

Jun 1, 2009


Welcome to OneLife Ministries. This site is designed to lead you prayerfully into a heart experience of Divine Presence, Who is Love. While it focuses on Christian teaching, I pray persons of varied faiths will find inspiration here. Indeed, "God" can be whatever image helps us trust in the Sacred, by whatever means Grace touches us each. Please share this ministry with others, and I hope you return soon. There is a new offering daily. And to be placed on the daily OneLife email list, to request notifications of new writings or submit prayer requests, write to barukhattah@embarqmail.com .

Blessings,
Rev Dr Brian K Wilcox, MDiv, MFT, PhD

OPENING PRAYER

Christ, may I be You
Christ, may I see You
Christ, may I find You
Christ, may I love You
Christ, may I give You,
and in giving, be, see, love, and find You daily
in the disguise of persons needing You,
through me,
in me,
for them.

Amen.

*Brian K. Wilcox

LISTENING TO THE SCRIPTURE

Anyone who wants to be my disciple must follow me, because my servants must be where I am [now, always]. And the Father will honor anyone who serves me.

*John 12.26 (NLT)

RECEIVING SACRED TEACHING

Mother Teresa, of Calcutta, was cleaning the wounds of a leper. A man who saw this said, "I wouldn't do that for a million dollars." Mother Teresa replied, "Neither would I. But I would gladly do it for Christ."

Speak tenderly to them.
Let there be kindness in your face,
in your eyes, in your smile,
in the warmth of your greeting.
Always have a cheerful smile.
Don't only give care,
but give your heart as well.

*Mother Teresa

A coward is incapable of exhibiting love; it is the prerogative of the brave.

*Mohandas Gandhi

QUIETLY RESPONDING

What does it mean to you to be Christ for others? How are you doing that now? How can you do that more consciously, daily?

Blessings!
