Hidden Words: Deepening Day 13, God’s Love & Our Relationship to Him – Arabic 20, 69 Persian 34

Yesterday, we learned ‘of the relationship He has established with us, telling us that “My light is in thee” and “within thee have I placed the essence of My light.When we reflect this light which He has placed within us, we get a glimpse of and can reflect the beauty of God Himself’. In the next three Hidden Words, Bahá’u’lláh goes on to tell us even more of this relationship we have with Him built upon love.

“O SON OF SPIRIT! My claim on thee is great, it cannot be forgotten. My grace to thee is plenteous, it cannot be veiled. My love has made in thee its home, it cannot be concealed. My light is manifest to thee, it cannot be obscured.” [Bahá’u’lláh, The Hidden Words, No. A20.]

“O YE SONS OF SPIRIT! Ye are My treasury, for in you I have treasured the pearls of My mysteries and the gems of My knowledge. Guard them from the strangers amidst My servants and from the ungodly amongst My people.”
 [Bahá’u’lláh, The Hidden Words, No. A69.] 

“O DWELLERS OF MY PARADISE! With the hands of loving-kindness I have planted in the holy garden of paradise the young tree of your love and friendship, and have watered it with the goodly showers of My tender grace; now that the hour of its fruiting is come, strive that it may be protected, and be not consumed with the flame of desire and passion.” [Bahá’u’lláh, The Hidden Words, No. P34.]
