Be ye holy; for I am holy.

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!

    “As he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; because it is written be ye holy; for I am holy.” (I Peter) Each year the “holiday” season seems to begin earlier and earlier with all materialism that goes with it. For that reason, I always like to think of this time as “holy days” – a time to become even closer to our Father-Mother God and to feel His presence. “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.” (Matthew) It is well to remember not to do anything that is not inspired by God’s loving direction. He will enfold you and yours in His arms of comfort and direct all your paths. One of the definitions of “holy” from the Webster’s 1828 Dictionary is “We call a man holy, when his heart is conformed in some degree to the image of God, and his life is regulated by divine precepts.” Be that man! You will find all your days to be holy ones.

    Thank you so much for this post. I think this is such an important reminder that we experience heaven right here on earth, if we recognize that God–the Christ consciousness–is ever with us.

    Hymn 139, “I walk with Love along the way, and O, it is a holy day” is another reminder of this precious truth! We must do more seeing as God sees, from His perspective.

    Awe-inspiring is this: “Right where you are is holy ground.” (Bicknell Young, “Consciousness, Where Art Thou?”)
