Enter into the will of God – submit to him completely and subjugate yourselves to his commands.

Love is the Christ life in man. My yoke is easy.

But you enter this earth with a will still opposing God, the earthly world, in which you are therefore to change yourselves and your will. Read more:

Love is the Christ life in man. "My yoke is easy."

9. February 1953. B.D. NR. 5597.

To make God‘s will to the own all the time, that is your task, the work, which you are to accomplish at yourselves. It can be a laborious work, but it can also proceed easily, it all depends, how your will is, i.e., how far you yourselves are still away from God and therefore also of a will opposing him. For a far distance from God also needs an enormous way for the return; then your work can certainly be laborious, but it can be dealt with; then "the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence", that you seize it. But if you have already come close to it, if you are no longer so stubborn in your resistance, if you have directed the will, the longing, towards him, then also your soul work will be easy, then the "burden is light and the yoke is easy." Enter into the will of God – submit to him completely and subjugate yourselves to his commands. Then you make the will God to your own will, and then you also reach your destination quite certainly, the unification with God on this earth. But you enter this earth with a will still opposing God, the earthly world, in which you are therefore to change yourselves and your will. And for that reason you also still belong to him, who put into you this will opposing God, which was cause to your former defection from God. You yourselves as man are no match for his power and cunning, you would never ever succeed, in your weakness, in you powerlessness, which is the result of your distance from God, to extricate yourselves from this his power; you would never ever succeed, to turn your will to God out of your own power. And for that reason Jesus Christ came to help you. Therefore you can now, with the help of Jesus Christ, break away from the enemy of your souls and completely subordinate your will to the will of God, but without Jesus Christ it is impossible for you. Your earth task is therefore now very simple. To take up his help with the soul work, with the change of your will. And you secure his help for you, as soon as you believe in him and keep his commends. For they are the commands of God, which the man Jesus taught you; it is the fulfilment of the divine will, so you give full expression to the teaching of Christ. But alone you would be too weak, to fulfil these commands, when you would not make use of his help, his favours acquired on the cross, which enable you to do everything what is God’s will. You are to live in love – for love is power, and this you gave up voluntarily, when you became loveless, when you fell into the depth for that reason. To live a life in love is easy for him, who is of a will turned to God, but also only then, when Christ has become alive in him, when his love for men has been recognized and also awakened the love in the own heart – for love changes the will infallibly and directs it to God. Love therefore is the Christ life in man, and love is also the change of will and nature in man. No-one can be happy without Jesus Christ, because no-one can be happy without love. Jesus Christ is embodied love and for that reason God himself. And so is your life task, the return to God, the revival of love in you, which you have once voluntarily given away – but which then also inevitably directs your will to God. And since you yourselves are too weak as man on this earth, so call yourselves eternal love for help, which in Jesus Christ also surely rushes to you to help. Acknowledge Jesus Christ as God’s son and redeemer of the world, then you also start your return, then he himself seizes you with his love and draws you, for he himself has acquired as man the right through his death on the cross; he has purchased you away through his blood from him, who keeps you imprisoned, and now you can, so you just want, be happy, for he strengthens this will that it no longer may turn away from God, but strives for him, as long as he dwells on earth.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5597.
