The Grand Necessity of Existence   Leave a comment

shutterstock_71074087Every Wednesday at 6.00 pm a Testimony Meeting is held at the Christian Science church in Barton (corner of Macquarie and Bligh Streets).  At these meetings short readings are followed by time for members of the congregation to share how they have been helped and healed through prayer.  Everyone is welcome.  If you are in Canberra on any Wednesday, please join us.

The topic for the readings this week was:  The Grand Necessity of Existence.  These words were taken from a passage in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy (p560: 13-15):

the grand necessity of existence is to gain the true idea of what constitutes the kingdom of heaven in man.

She goes on to give the definition of the Kingdom of Heaven as:

The reign of harmony in divine Science; the realm of unerring, eternal, and omnipotent Mind; the atmosphere of Spirit, where Soul is supreme (SH 590: 1).

In the Bible Jesus gives many descriptions of the Kingdom of Heaven.  In one he says:

 the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearlsWho, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.  (The Bible – Matthew 13: 45, 46)

and …

The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:  Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you (The Bible – Luke 17: 20, 21).

The Faith that Heals   Leave a comment

This recording is of the readings on the topic, The Faith that Heals, that formed part of the Wednesday Testimony Meeting at the Christian Science Church in Canberra this week (12 July 2017).

The readings are from the The Bible – King James Version and the textbook of Christian Science, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.

 

 … the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; … (The Bible – James 5: 15)

your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. (The Bible – I Corinthians 2: 5)

The prayer that reforms the sinner and heals the sick is an absolute faith that all things are possible to God, — a spiritual understanding of Him, an unselfed love. (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy p1: 1-4)

A Testimony Meeting is held every Wednesday at 6.00 pm.  A new topic is introduced each week and members of the congregation are encouraged to share their own thoughts on this topic and to tell how they have been helped and healed by spiritualising thought.

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge him, …  It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.  (The Bible – Proverbs 3: 5, 6, 8)

Stand porter at the door of thought.  Admitting only such conclusions as you wish realized in bodily results, you will control yourself harmoniously. (Science and Health p392)

The Getting of Wisdom – the Path from Sense to Soul – Readings from the Bible and the textbook of Christian Science, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.

When wisdom entered into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul; Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee. (Prov 2: 10, 11)

The finite must yield to the infinite.  Advancing to a higher plane of action, thought rises from the material sense to the spiritual, from the scholastic to the inspirational, and from the mortal to the immortal.  (Science and Health p256: 1-5)
