I will be his God, and he shall be my son

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!

    Rev 21:7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
    This simple commentary from Barnes’ Notes On The Bible brings the essence of this favorite verse home:

    And I will be his God – That is, forever. He would be to them all that is properly implied in the name of God; he would bestow upon them all the blessings which it was appropriate for God to bestow.

    And he shall be my son – He shall sustain to me the relation of a son, and shall be treated as such. He would ever onward sustain this relation, and be honored as a child of God.

    What is the overcoming that deserves this certain promise? It must be speaking to how much I do affirm my unity with God as His, how I love to obey His laws and see them as the governing presence and because of my love for this Truth, stay alert to reject the false claims that come and replace them with the spiritual facts.
