The true Stimulus

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 metaphysician, making Mind his basis of operation irrespective of matter and regarding the truth and harmony of being as superior to error and discord, has rendered himself strong, instead of weak, to cope with the case; and he proportionately strengthens his patient with the stimulus of courage and conscious power. Both Science and consciousness are now at work in the economy of being according to the law of Mind, which ultimately asserts its absolute supremacy.” (S&H 423:18-26)

    I couldn’t help but think that this is the only true “stimulus” for our nation — the stimulus of courage and conscious power exemplified by our church watches and all our prayers, — it is the law of Mind, at work in our economy and throughout our nation, — and every nation — and is ultimately asserting its absolute supremacy.

    Thanks Joanne. I love your choice of the word stimulus.. This part of the meaning from Webster is more appropriate to me :that which rouses the mind or spirit (s).
    In addition to courage and conscious power should be what these commands from the Almighty Father-Mother of us all requires; humble obedience to God’s laws!
    Deuteronomy 6:18 And thou shalt do that which is right and good in the sight of the Lord: that it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest go in and possess the good land which the Lord sware unto thy fathers,
    19 To cast out all thine enemies from before thee, as the Lord hath spoken.

    He also made us CAPABLE of hearing and obeying Him!
    Deuteronomy 4:36 (to :), 39
    36 Out of heaven he made thee to hear his voice, that he might instruct thee:
    39 Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the Lord he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else.

    The answer to all our ills and confusion is “blowing in the wind” in these verses above…. Let’s HUMBLY OBEY the ONLY LAWGIVER.
