•… ‘It is the decision of the Holy Spirit and of us not to place on you any burden beyond these necessities, (Acts 15:28)
•So may your way be known upon earth; among all nations, your salvation. (Psalm 67:3)
•May the peoples praise you, O God; may all the peoples praise you! (Psalm 67:6)
•The city had no need of sun or moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gave it light, and its lamp was the Lamb. (Revelations 21:23)
•Whoever loves me will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our dwelling with him. (John 14:23b)
•What does Jesus mean, “keep my word?”
•What unnecessary burdens do you place on yourself and upon others?
•How do you show your love for Jesus?
•What does “we will make our dwelling with him” mean to you?

The man who lives and acts according to the grace of Christ dwelling in him acts in that case as another Christ, as a son of God, and thus he prolongs in his own life the effects and the miracle of the Incarnation.1
