Amazing Grace

The Forum is dedicated to each week's lesson, and may be used to post questions, comments, and constructive replies that strive to uncover the inspired meaning of the text. The Bulletin Board is for gratitude for Christian Science and the Church, as well as timely excerpts from the Bible, the works of Mrs. Eddy, and the early workers that help and encourage. We are very grateful for all posts that conform to these guidelines, but will edit or remove anything that the Practitioners feel is not in complete accord with pure Christian Science or in any way disrespectful of it.

We also ask that you keep your postings as concise as possible; make two short postings of the long posts or send the lengthy ones for publication in our Magazine or Newsletter. If you quote the Bible, please use The King James Version, as this is what Mrs. Eddy used. Thank you!

    “But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.”

    Grace is “the free unmerited love and favor of God; the spring and source of all the benefits men receive from Him; the divine influence in renewing the heart and restraining from sin.” (Webster, 1828)

    Jesus said it best: “I can of mine own self do nothing,” and it’s grace that enables us to “walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit”; it’s grace “teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world.”
    And it’s grace that brought me (and each one of us) to Plainfield Church and Christian Science, and gave me a second chance and filled my life with God’s blessings.

    “Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
    That saved a wretch like me!
    I once was lost, but now am found;
    Was blind, but now I see.”

    Amen! Before finding Plainfield I was lost, living a “good life” to be sure but oh so lost. At the same time I was striving to find answers, which through the grace of God led me to Plainfield via the internet. Now I am often reminded in gratitude how God saved me from my own reckless foolishness and truly “gave me a second chance and filled my life with God’s blessings”!
