Let this mind be in you

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!

    In his epistle to the Ephesians, Paul writes, “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus.” Paul was very careful about his use of language. He wrote, LET this mind be in you… He did not write, “Put this mind in you,” or “Go find the mind.” You don’t have to put it there. That mind is God (Mind). It is already there. You only have to let it be.

    Whenever I struggle for an answer to a tough problem, it is a great comfort to know that the answer is not somewhere “out there” that I have to look for. Nor is the answer ever in any human theory or belief. The answer is already in Mind, and that Mind is already in me (if I LET it!)

    The lesson gives us the recipe for knowing whatever we need to know. “All we correctly know of Spirit comes from God, divine Principle, and is learned through Christ and Christian Science.” And then it tells us what we must do: “This Soul-sense comes to the human mind when the latter yields to the divine Mind.” I do not always find it easy to “yield” my human sense of things to the divine Mind, but I have found that when I do, I am amazed at the answers. God really does take good care of us, when we LET Him.
