The Christ Within: Our Moral Compass
The Only Accurate Guide to the Truth is not created by our ideas about what is right or wrong, but is only able to point to True North if we have magnetized our souls to be sensitive to God's work within us through our actions and activities and experiences in this world.
Before Christ showed me the Truth within, I made my way through this world on what I thought about actions, people, virtues, sins. I believed my thoughts and ideas were a foundation, in fact the only foundation, on which to build not only my definition of right and wrong but my very definition of the world.
I was shown my true Measure, and the Way and the Truth through Jesus Christ. I learned the Moral Compass he is for us all, a True Alignment that will never fail us. As long as I observe the world I am building for the True Fruit of the Spirit, if I seek to Love others and myself, if I seek to know the Truth about myself and the world, Truths about me and the world that were before me, are now and will ever after be, if I can submit, be obedient and align myself with True North, I cannot fail in this life. I will have done all that was Needful and Necessary, no more, and no less.
Praise God for his gracious mercy and immense loving-kindness that opens what is closed, frees what is bound, finds what is lost, and saves even those who would not yet know him.
