|LESSONS from Our Lord for the World
Volume I Lesson #27
January 6, 1989
My dear child, as you have seen, when My children truly focus on Me, My Holy Spirit fills them with the knowledge of the Truth. The Truth is that I give you love, peace, joy, faith and mercy, because I am Love, I am your Peace, I am Joy, I am Faith and I am Mercy.
Why is it so difficult for My people to grasp this Truth? It is your salvation, your hope, and your strength. If My people would be patient, and calmly open their hearts and allow Me to fill them with My Spirit, they too would be filled with the knowledge of My Truth.
I tell you this because it is the first step—allowing Me to love them by opening their hearts.
What does it mean to “open your heart?” To open your heart is to allow yourself to love Me by absorbing My goodness. To absorb My goodness is to listen to My Gospel words and live My goodness. It is not difficult, but people struggle because they make it so difficult.
