No ambition, affection, nor aim apart from holiness

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!

    When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great company come unto him, …Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force, and make him a king, he departed into a mountain himself alone.” (John) Jesus was so above all the commotions and temptations of the world. First, he easily was able to perceive what was in the thought of the crowd and secondly, he had no desire for any worldly honors. As was read from our past Wednesday meeting in Miscellaneous Writings, “Have no ambition, affection, nor aim apart from holiness.” Instead of accepting any adulation, Jesus retreated by himself up into a mountain. He certainly proved this divine state of holiness was truly his only ambition, affection, and aim and it was this total consecration to God that enabled him then to walk upon a tumultuous sea. Error would try to take our peace in so many ways. How wise it is to follow our Master’s example, and not be drawn into the myriad suggestion’s and allurements that would try to lead us astray. How important to keep and value our Christ consciousness and in so doing keep our peace.
