Thanks at the remembrance of His 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!

    “Rejoice in the Lord, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.” Ps.97:12

    This week’s Watching Point 32 states: “In denying matter you are really denying the way mortal mind sees the true heaven and earth, that already exist here and now in all their perfection. You will surely see this perfection the moment your dull eyes are opened.” It is God that opens my eyes to the remembrance of His holiness; therefore I give thanks to God.

    Henry Grove, an English minister (1683-1738) wrote about this verse: “God…feeds our hearts with a thousand little rivulets of joy and satisfaction from created objects.” What an abundance of good to be thankful for! — and to know that it comes from God and is not in matter. And Andreas Musculus (1514–1581), a German Lutheran theologian writes about the same verse: “Two things are to be observed — One, that the Psalmist unites joy in the Lord and praise of God. Another, that he connects the praise of God with the remembrance of his holiness. Thus this verse contains the root and fruit of divine praise. The root is joy in God; the fruit is the remembrance of God and his goodness.”


    Thank you I love this quote from Henry Grove!
