A Course in Miracles – Workbook Lesson 343
I am not asked to make a sacrifice
To find the mercy and the peace of God.
W-pII.343.1. The end of suffering can not be loss. 2 The gift of everything can be but gain. 3 You only give. 4 You never take away. 5 And You created me to be like You, so sacrifice becomes impossible for me as well as You. 6 I, too, must give. 7 And so all things are given unto me forever and forever. 8 As I was created I remain. 9 Your Son can make no sacrifice, for he must be complete, having the function of completing You. 10 I am complete because I am Your Son. 11 I cannot lose, for I can only give, and everything is mine eternally.
W-pII.343.2. The mercy and the peace of God are free. 2 Salvation has no cost. 3 It is a gift that must be freely given and received. 4 And it is this that we would learn today.
