Practical Atonement Discussion

This is from the ACIM Use of Terms (C-5.2):

The Name of Jesus is the Name of one who was a man but saw the face of Christ in all his brothers and remembered God. So he became identified with Christ, a man no longer, but at one with God.

What does "see the face of Christ in all brothers and remember God" mean in moment to moment application?

I have primarily been taking "saw the face of Christ" to mean seeing all moments as forgiveness opportunities.

"Remembered God" means he remembered God's existence moment to moment.

Practically, this means to achieve his state, I should forgiveness and remember God's existence moment to moment.

This is a definition of Atonement, the final goal to which the Course is directed. Kinda want to get this right.

Do you have any light to shed on this? Comment.

    Just bumped into your videos and website. Very nice! My synopsis on Atonement is it is the initial goal and final goal :)) A seeming process “here”. Yet the ACCEPTANCE can be 100%, always, in every instant. It is the end of choice, it is the decision to accept that I am as God created me. The decision can be absolute, the ramifications of the decision may seem to unfold in time. “The teacher of God may have accepted the function God has given him long before he has learned all that his acceptance holds out to him. 4 It is only the end that is certain. 5 Anywhere along the way, the necessary realization of inclusiveness may reach him. 6 If the way seems long, let him be content. 7 He has decided on the direction he wants to take.” Thanks for sharing your energized view of the “real” story of salvation :)) (I spent time at the “Monastery” and Kamas quite a few years ago.)
