Is My Relationship with God MOST Important?

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!

    Luke 14: 27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.
    33 So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.

    What can’t I give up for Christ’s sake? Put in other words, Is my relationship with God the most important thing above all else? This question starts some deep examining of my honest commitment to God. I found to what extent certain family ties and traditions would challenge this commitment. But to think that all that is required to be given up are those things that bind us to the “flesh;” what needs to go for each of us to own our true heritage of Life in God, Spirit. This includes the wrong material concepts of man, birth, death, our relationships to each other, holidays etc..

    Christ Jesus and Mary Baker Eddy both showed great examples in how we should answer this question. They both protesting against all evil (in this sense evil is anything fleshly..false material senses) bore the cross and won the crown. Am I doing this? I am grateful that I find my answers by sincerely praying for my Father’s will, not my will to be done. That puts Him first and gives me peace. This makes a disciple….a follower.
