love the Lord

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!

    Our golden text this week starts out with “O love the Lord, all ye his saints…”. So, I had to ask myself how I could love God, who is Love itself. Remembering that God is good and that to love good and to do good, just because it is right and not for any expected personal benefit is the pure motive for loving God. This idea of doing good just because it is good and for no other reason, is something that brings the power of God to the scene, and sheds some light on what it is to be a saint. This is a good check, especially during this holiday time when the public sentiment is so focused on personal wants, or rather the efforts to stimulate personal wants for economic gain. So, this intentional effort to stimulate selfishness can be countered with the unselfish love of God.
