Let Us Run With Patience The Race

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!

    The race before us is the same that was for the Hebrews. From Matthew Henry commentary: The persevering obedience of faith in Christ, was the race set before the Hebrews, wherein they must either win the crown of glory, or have everlasting misery for their portion; and it is set before us.

    We cannot become aware of this Christ within each of us without the quality of patience, since there is the giving up of the old involved in this process, in order for us to see correctly what we have always had….our true being. We cannot run the race effectively with those old habits of wrong thinking. With the many examples from Jesus’ life, Mrs. Eddy’s and many others we can press on denying all that would hinder us and be encouraged instead of discouraged when the race appear slow.

    From (Poems, p. 69):—
    “Father-Mother good, lovingly
    Thee I seek,—
    Patient, meek,
    In the way Thou hast,—
    Be it slow or fast,
    Up to Thee.”

    This is helpful to remember when the evils of impatience and discouragement try us.
