To be Christian therefore means, to behave in a Christian spirit, as the man Jesus has done it on earth, to practise unselfish neighbourly love and always be mindful of that you can only find then redemption, when you acknowledge him as God’s son and redeemer of the world – and when you prove this through a life in the following of Jesus.

Real Christianity. Following Jesus.

5. December 1952. B.D. NR. 5548.

I myself still want to give you an addition, so that you recognize, how exceptionally important it is that you acknowledge the son of man Jesus as God and redeemer of mankind. My love for you men did not want to leave you in sin, far away from me, which made you unhappy. I myself could not approach you, because in your state you were not able to dwell near me, because you would have perished in the fire of my love. But without me it was again not possible that rescue became yours, and for that reason I had to come up to you covered, certainly having an effect on you with my love power, but in a robe, which did not frighten you, before which you did not need to flee – in a robe, which was similar to that of yours. I had to come as man to you. Understand first the reasons that and why I had to come to you: to help you. Then you also understand why I came in a form familiar to you. But also this stay of my divinity in a man had to be governed by law, what certainly was also possible, but unknown for you. That my love spirit could manifest itself everywhere, where only one basic condition was fulfilled – where love existed. Therefore then man Jesus had to live himself in love, then he also gave me the possibility to manifest myself in him, for in my nature I can only be where love is. Divine love wanted to help you and for that reason chose a form for itself, in which it could take residence, without violating the law from eternity, but what would have been the case, when I would have embodied myself in a sinful man, whose love and will would have been directed against me. Love wanted to bring help to you, and since the man Jesus was full of love, he did for you, what brought you help. He atoned for your sin. I as a God of justice could not simply delete a sin, which had not yet found atonement, but I could accept an atonement done for you, but again only then, when it was done voluntarily and out of love. And that the man Jesus did and in this way became your redeemer. I, as eternal love myself, was in him, and consequently love brought that sacrifice. I myself died for you on the cross, for I myself was in the man Jesus. From this side you must consider the work of redemption and will then understand that this redemption can only then become yours, when you believe in Jesus Christ as redeemer, but what depends on that you obey his teaching; that you follow him, otherwise your faith is just a play with words, for real faith is only awakened to life through love. If you want to be called Christians, then you must make an effort to lead a love life; you cannot get yourselves this name, when you live completely against his teaching, and his teaching demands love for God and for the neighbour. To be Christian therefore means, to behave in a Christian spirit, as the man Jesus has done it on earth, to practise unselfish neighbourly love and always be mindful of that you can only find then redemption, when you acknowledge him as God’s son and redeemer of the world – and when you prove this through a life in the following of Jesus.
Amen B.D. NR. 5548.
