Every man who practises love will also summon up the power and the will to struggle against his faults and weaknesses, and he will also carry away the victory, because love itself is the power. Read more:

A Bertha Dudde message:

 

Imitation of Jesus. Life in love and self-abnegation.

1. November 1946. B.D. NR. 3920.

Who is not like me gentle and patient, who does not practise himself in imitation, that he gives up all qualities, which adapt themselves to the nature of my opponent, who does not continually strive for the virtues, which stamp him to a divine being, he will hardly reach the goal, to find the unification with the father from eternity, who is pure love in himself and who can only unite himself with creatures, which have become love like him. My walk on earth is to serve you as example because as man I was exposed to the same temptations like you, because I had to go the way, which alone could lead a soul to perfection. I had to struggle like you against all desires of the flesh, as also against all qualities of an un-divine being, otherwise my walk of life could not serve as example for you, when I could have gone round the testing of my will, being born free of all human faults. I had to live through life on earth in its depth, i.e. have the possibility to the same sins from out of the body, to omit them out of free will and to avoid all incitement for that purpose. I had to struggle against fleshly desires and thereby make the soul in me strong and willing to unite with the spirit. The sinfulness of the surroundings often set my love and patience up on hard tests, but when I wanted to remain gentle and humble from all my heart, then I was also not allowed to be overbearing. And the weakness of fellowmen moved me to pity that they did not resist the temptations, and my love increased. I wanted to help those who were lying on the ground and could not raise themselves up. Because of being man myself I knew about all weaknesses of a man, and this knowledge reinforced my gentleness and patience. Being man myself I could at any time place myself into the soul of him who sinned, although I myself was without sin, although in virtue of my will I myself had remained victor in all temptations of the flesh and the soul. But I took the power for this out of love, and every man who practises love will also summon up the power and the will to struggle against his faults and weaknesses, and also he will carry away the victory, because love itself is the power. And who therefore is active in love, he will also practise all virtues, which mark a divine being: he will be gentle and patient, compassionate, peaceable, humble and just. Because when he offers love to fellowmen, his thinking is also full of love, and he struggles against all weaknesses and faults with ease. Follow me – lead a life like me in love and self-abnegation and you will make yourselves free of all sinful desires; you will not fall into sin yourselves; you will become like the nature of eternal love and find the unification with it already on earth, and you will be sure of reaching of your aim. And therefore you also have to always take the cross upon you, like me, und are not allowed to become impatient, because when you earnestly ask me for help, I help you carry it, and your soul will make itself the sooner free from earthly desires the more willing it carries the cross, which the father’s love has imposed on it, so that it matures. Follow me, and take my life on earth as an example, and you will never ever fall into sin; you will redeem yourself by virtue of your will and love; you will become free, become infinitely happy beings, provided with all divine qualities; you will be full of light and power in the spiritual kingdom and live happily in eternity. Amen. B.D. NR. 3920.
