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.
