The Former Things Are passed Away

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!

    Revelation 21:4, 5
    4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
    5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.

    Oh what a certain promise to keep us grateful and expectant of the joyful blessings of “Renewal” and the triumphant universal resurrection and commitment to a life with God which Easter should mean to us. What a time to ponder these precious words and be comforted that our daily striving to remain obedient to God’s laws, our covenant with Life in God helps our “rising again” without the former things!!
    SH 34:20-24 His resurrection was also their resurrection. It helped them to raise themselves and others from spiritual dulness and’ blind belief in God into the perception of infinite possibilities.

    This time could be the “rising again” with a new view of Life, as spiritual, with God as our Parent and we as His children. Jesus’ grave clothes, napkin etc. were left in the tomb. This tells me that this “rising again” cannot be with the former things.I can with reliance on God leave the former things for a continued renewal! “Behold I make all things new.”
