The Fifty Miracle Principles of A Course in Miracles
by Kenneth Wapnick

Principle 27

A miracle is a universal blessing from God through me to all my brothers. 
It is the privilege of the forgiven to forgive.

This is the first time that the person of Jesus appears in the Course. The miracle has its source in God and is expressed through Jesus. Jesus, being the manifestation of the Holy Spirit, thus brings the Love of God through us to other people, bridging the gulf between ourselves and God. That is what a miracle does. And as we forgive, we are forgiven, which really means we accept God's Love. Of course, the more we accept forgiveness, the more we would want to forgive other people. It is a reciprocal process. It is always important to remember that Jesus does the miracles, not us. Our job is only to clear our minds of what would interfere so that he can extend his love through us.
