When I reflect on relationships in my past, marriages or friendships or otherwise, I can admit to myself there was a smack of idolatry as Jesus speaks of here. Now, it’s not that I worshipped someone else, but when we look at the idolatry, it is putting someone else above us. I held some people and created an agenda that there was to be no mistakes, and really it was to have them worship me. Yikes!
Turning this over to the Holy Spirit changes this. I no longer make others responsible for my feelings, my emotions, my needs and anything else I would dream up. I am responsible for the own choices and decisions I have made in my life. Blame disappears. Darkness is lifted. Simply, I remove the body from the equation and receive eternal blessing. This blessing comes from the knowledge so simply we are One.
It is this simple. The barriers I put up are long and winding before my brothers and sisters in the world. With each tick of truth, another barrier disintegrates and here I am opening my mind more and more to the true relationship.
Here is the way to true relationships held gently open, through which you and your brother walk together, leaving the body thankfully behind and resting in the Everlasting Arms. Love’s Arms are open to receive you, and give you peace forever.
