Daily Inspiration, July 24th

SunRise (1)

“‘Now,’ cried the apostle, ‘is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation,’ — meaning, not that now men must prepare for a future-world salvation, or safety, but that now is the time in which to experience that salvation in spirit and in life.”  (Science and Health, page 39)

This message really could not be clearer! While some may believe that we are waiting for our redemption and salvation, this isn’t what the passage quoted here is saying at all.

For what does the word “now” mean? We probably don’t need a dictionary to tell us the definition, but here it is: “at the present time or moment; without further delay, immediately; at once.”  I’m not getting a lot of equivocation there. Now means right this minute. And the verse says that this time for salvation is the one that is accepted, is right, is when we can fully agree to claim and live it out.

This day of salvation is not something we need to push out into the future, either in terms of some holy day achieved after death or the second coming or some divine event, or in the sense of waiting for our best experience, our truest life, our greatest understanding and awareness of the Truth of God’s Love and our own worthiness to fully know this.

Let’s try to be less occupied with preparing for some looming day, thereby pushing it off into the perpetual future, and be more occupied with living the Truth here and now. Jesus did the proving. This declaration confirms his charge to us, which is also our great blessing.

You are saved and safe now. This moment is just right and you are exactly right in it to feel and express God’s nature, that Life divine and glorious and happy and satisfied. Believe this promise! Lean into this moment with expectation. Now is the time!

“Keep alert. Be firm in your faith. Stay brave and strong. Show love in everything you do.” (I Corinthians 16: 13, Contemporary English Version)

What a great checklist for being a good person. If we are to follow these directives, we will surely make a positive impact on the world. And we will also find our own sense of purpose, satisfaction, and joy. For we will be doing what we were built to do. We will be expressing God’s own presence as we so naturally do. This is healing to the world and it blesses us as well.

I like how these steps seem to have an appropriate order to them. Keep alert. This means to be conscious of Truth and of the opposition to it. It really means staying awake and not allowing ourselves to fall into the mesmerism of mortality, of limit and fear and materiality. It means staying on guard against the evil lies, but also alert to receive good news, assurance, healing angels.

And following this, we are advised to be firm in our faith. As we stay mentally active and ready, we become more aware of God’s presence, so we find faith comes as a natural result. And yet, we can also be swayed by the errors that are being exposed. So, a firmness in this faith is called for. We must trust our God more than we trust the senses, opinions, matter.

And with this faith we are able to stay brave and strong. For we know we are not leaning on personal strength but leaning into the very power of God—His certainty, His capacity, His sure defense of His own purpose of goodness.

And this leads to the way in which this confidence and trust is expressed. It is by Love. For knowing God is knowing Love, and to know Love is to want to experience it always, to share the richness of it, and to bring love into all that we do. And this is not only a nice thing to do, it is where we have the power to save, to uplift, and to truly thrive!

“…don’t remember the sins of my youth or my wrongdoing. Remember me only according to your faithful love for the sake of your goodness, Lord.” (Psalms 25: 7, Common English Bible)

This plea to God is one with which we all may identify at times. We feel that our mistakes and misbehavior, the decisions we’ve made or the way we have acted in the past, has left a lingering impression that we wish could be removed.

Let’s remember that indeed, it can be. The second part of this request of God is that He remember the psalmist according to God’s own faithfulness and His own goodness. This is not only a hope, but it is a declaration of God’s qualities and of His saving law to our lives.

God remembers what He made. He is forever sustaining us, not according to our human goodness or lack of it, but according to His own goodness and fullness of it. We stray like children at times, not knowing what we are doing and blowing it, to our own estimation. It can feel like we are scarred by this, but that’s not what Truth sees. It is not what God knows. He is faithful to His ideal. His Mind is keeping intact that glorious idea that He caused, the true and innocent you that may be hidden by shame and fear but which has not left His thought; which has not left reality.

We are not punished by God for errors of sense. We are always being cleansed by His Love. It isn’t He that needs to be ready to forgive us, but we that must be willing to accept His uninterrupted Love as legitimate, timely, and freeing.

“…wherever two or three people come together in my name, I am there, right among you!” (Matthew 18: 20, JB Phillips New Testament)

Let us remember the great power we have when we join with one another for good. Whether we are two or a full congregation, coming together with a purpose of praise and love for God and mankind, is a healing event.

For when we do this, the Christ is with us. We are not alone and attempting to make our lives or the world a better place. We have the great wisdom and love of the Christ-Truth in that space with us. We have that inspired Word revealing gifts of guidance and protecting our holy cause. We are in a true sanctuary and this is where things happen.

And let us remember, too, that even when we come together with a common purpose and divergent opinions, the Christ is there as well. It is there to reveal the One Mind’s intention for everyone, in a way that is mutually blessing, satisfying, and progressive.

Let’s know that the Christ comes with authority and tender loving-kindness into our gatherings. And this spirit of Truth and healing Love also attends us and prepares the way when we feel we are in it alone. At these times, we can be reminded that the Christ is with us, so we are accompanied by a friend, a helper, the very Truth that sets us free.

Daily Inspiration, July 10th

“Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. There is more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? And you know the way to where I am going.” (John 14: 1-2, 4)

Ease your troubled hearts and minds. Take in this assuring, comforting, promise. Jesus meant it for you. He is inviting you into your rightful place, your rightful experience with God, divine Life and Love.

You can’t be left out. God’s infinite presence and Love makes His embracing home forever at hand. Jesus prepared the way by defining the path. He recognized and proved that the Christ, the awareness of man’s oneness with God as His child, sets us free to live that reality, claim that birthright. Right now.

And this true state of our being grants us a place of safety, serenity, satisfaction, comfort, beauty. The mansions of God are many, and they are not obscure or distant, nor are our resources too paltry to participate. We are the children of God and we know the way. We have been given that Truth, within our hearts, and we do know where we are going. We are able to hear guidance. We are ready and worthy. We are at the door and our Father-Mother is welcoming us in.

lovehealing

“My children, let us not love merely in theory or in words—let us love in sincerity and in practice!” (I John 3: 18, JB Phillips New Testament)

We can talk of love and of goodness. We can discuss the benefits of being compassionate and kind. We can contribute to various causes and sign petitions. These do have value, but only in so much that we are truly sincere.

The most powerful and meaningful thing we can do is to love. It is not to merely speak of this quality or to despise those who do not feel or act in a loving way. If we are to be God’s ideas, express the intention of the Almighty, we must love from the heart. This is true might and it is also where we find healing, serenity, and happiness.

It may seem difficult at times to truly and honestly love. We feel hurt or angry. Or perhaps it feels easier to remain ignorant of the need for true loving-kindness in the world. It is just too big a burden.

But love is not a personal quality that is a weighty load to carry or difficult to find. Love is God, and God is expressing Himself at all times and in all ways. Our call is to unite with that Love, to agree with its presence and to yield to its all-encompassing embrace.

This divine Love is always coming to us and we can reflect it back out into our own lives and into the world. This will be healing as it is sincere and as we put it into practice, one opportunity at a time. There will always be a reason to love and there will always be a blessing in doing it!

Daily Inspiration, July 3rd

“And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.” (Mark 13: 37)

Jesus spoke forcefully to his disciples. He was giving them the guidance they would need going forward, without his personal presence to lead and inspire.

They were being told to “watch.” Jesus wanted them to stay alert, to be ready for the Christ at all times, and to be awake enough to recognize the Truth from the lie. He was asking them to keep that eternal flame alive, the one that had been ignited within them as they witnessed Jesus’s life, words, and works. This flame must also be a light to keep them conscious, wide-eyed, ready.

Jesus clearly included us all in the call to watchfulness. We also must remain at the ready, on guard, not sleeping on the job. This watch requires us to be discerning, to use the Truth Jesus proclaimed and demonstrated as our guide to exposing the lie, seeing the counterfeit “Christ” attempting to gain our trust and worship.

We are to watch our thought. We are watching in the manner that Jesus did, awake to God and His presence and Love. Anything that opposes this Love, the Oneness of Mind, we must watch out for. This requires discipline, but it shouldn’t feel like a burden.

For to watch for the Christ, for the Truth to be revealed, is to watch with God—it is to unite with that One Mind that is in control, that abides no lies. And so our watch is not all about standing guard rigidly and somberly. It is about being awake to witness the glory of God, and to feel the Love that is real and powerful and ours to know and to eagerly share.
