God takes upon Himself the pain and sorrow of the world, in order to prepare the hearts of men for Love! This day marks the beginning of the Christian Era, the year of Christ. Christ sacrificed His life for the sake of those who put their faith in Him. He propagated the truth that service is God, that sacrifice is God. Even if you falter in the adoration of God, don’t falter in the service of living Gods, who assume human shape and are moving all around you in large numbers, wearing manifold costumes of apparel and speech! Only those who can pour out compassion to fellowmen can claim a place in the Grace of God. This is also the highest spiritual discipline; it impresses on you, unity of humanity and glory of God's immanence. May this discipline of Seva taken up with genuine delight spread all over, and may this land be happy and prosperous. May the world have peace and happiness, and loving trust. That is My blessing. - Divine Discourse, Dec 25, 1970.
