Grow in grace

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. If you quote the Bible, please use The King James Version, as this is what Mrs. Eddy used. Thank you!

    “But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.” II Peter 3

    This last Sunday during our Roundtable we were reminded to keep our walk with God steady, to follow what is being taught and be patient because this work takes time and discipline. We were also encouraged to take note of our progress rather than focus on what is wrong. To do your best and abide in the 91st psalm. Every day is new so don’t take the past with you.

    This spoke to me in what is partly meant to “grow in grace.” The grace to keep going on, the grace to accept correction, the grace to learn from mistakes, the grace to take step by step, the grace to say not to negative thinking, the grace to become less self focused and more God centered, the grace to forgive others as we would be forgiven, the grace to stand up to error, the grace to be grateful, the grace to see good everywhere, the grace listen to God. I am very grateful for our weekly classes.

    “The new birth is not the work of a moment. It begins with moments, and goes on with years; moments of surrender to God, of childlike trust and joyful adoption of good; moments of self-abnegation, self-consecration, heaven-born hope, and spiritual love.” Miscellaneous Writings by Mary Baker Eddy, page 15

    “The purification of sense and self is a proof of progress. ‘Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.'” From Science and Health by Mary Baker Eddy, page 324
