Christ in you

When we experience Christ in us we realize the reality that every human being is created in the image of God. We begin to see our fellow humans and fellow creatures with new eyes. Christfulness leads to awareness and creates an attentive or heedful presence in the world and in the company of other people. We are now looking for the image of God in the other person. That is why Jesus teaches us to love our enemies and pray for those who persecute us. We learn that we have no enemies. Other people may consider us their enemies or act in a hostile way toward us, but in our eyes there are no enemies, just fellow humans who are created to be the children of God.
