The less a man thinks of himself and the more he hands out in love to his fellowmen, the closer he is to his aim and the closer is also God himself to him; then he goes the right way to him, and God himself comes to meet him. Read more:

Way of the following of Jesus.

15. September 1954. B.D. NR. 6053.

The way, which you go, is to be the way of the following of Jesus; you are to take him as the model; you are to live on earth, as he has held it up as an example for you - you are to lead a life in love and also devotedly take suffering upon yourselves, which is imposed on you, so that your soul matures. The man Jesus has gone the way ahead of you, why you can now follow him and you then also securely reach your aim: to return to the father, from whom you once went out. And Jesus has shown you this way, by him giving you the commands of the love for God and the neighbour, through which obeying you walk the way of the following of Jesus. But this requires your will and an overcoming of yourselves, a putting back of the own wishes and desires, to help the neighbour, so he needs help. Love is to be kindled in you, because otherwise the aim cannot be reached - the unification with God, who himself is love and for that reason can also only be won through love. The man Jesus was filled with love for his fellowmen, and for that reason he could also join God; he could receive the eternal divinity in him, which can only unite with a man, who has fashioned himself to love. And this alone is the purpose and aim of man in earth life, that his whole nature changes to love - that he gives up self-love, that he always just wants give and to make happy and therefore makes himself divine, because love is divine and that man, who fashions himself to love, becomes a divine being. The less a man thinks of himself and the more he hands out in love to his fellowmen, the closer he is to his aim and the closer is also God himself to him; then he goes the right way to him, and God himself comes to meet him. But then he will bear suffering without a murmur; he will feel himself as a cross bearer and willingly take the cross on his shoulders, for he takes Jesus as his model; he follows him - he goes the way, which Jesus has gone ahead of him - which all must go to reach eternal happiness.
Amen. B.D. NR. 6053.
