Our guarantee of obedience

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!

    “The only guarantee of obedience is a right apprehension of Him whom to know aright is Life eternal.” (S&H vii)

    “Who is it that demands our obedience? He who, in the language of Scripture,’doeth according to His will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth; and none can can stay His hand, or say unto Him, What doest Thou?'” (S&H 256)

    To obey out of fear is not a guarantee of obedience, as society clearly shows. The true guarantee of one’s obedience is the result of a love of good, and in Christian Science it’s our love for God and our love for God is in proportion to our understanding of Him. This week’s watch tells us that our understanding of Him must change and improve as we grow. This also means a growing understanding of what it means to do His will. Anytime I have any self-assertion, I want, I must drop it for “I want only what you want, Father, no matter what that means.” I am learning that this is the only way to really respect and honor God.
