Moving in accord with Spirit

Wednesday, 5/27/15 readings, Second Church Berkeley
SH Ps. 46:1, 2, 4, 5
1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. 2 Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; 4 There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High. 5 God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.
SH Ps. 121:2, 3 (to 1st :)
2 My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth. 3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved:
SH Matt. 9:35, 36
35 And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. 36 But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.
SH Acts 11:19-26
19 Now they which were scattered abroad upon the persecution that arose about Stephen travelled as far as Phenice, and Cyprus, and Antioch, preaching the word to none but unto the Jews only. 20 And some of them were men of Cyprus and Cyrene, which, when they were come to Antioch, spake unto the Grecians, preaching the LORD Jesus. 21 And the hand of the Lord was with them: and a great number believed, and turned unto the Lord. 22 Then tidings of these things came unto the ears of the church which was in Jerusalem: and they sent forth Barnabas, that he should go as far as Antioch. 23 Who, when he came, and had seen the grace of God, was glad, and exhorted them all, that with purpose of heart they would cleave unto the Lord. 24 For he was a good man, and full of the Holy Ghost and of faith: and much people was added unto the Lord. 25 Then departed Barnabas to Tarsus, for to seek Saul: 26 And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.
SH Acts 17:22-28 (to 1st ;)
22 Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars’ hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious. 23 For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you. 24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; 25 Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things; 26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; 27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: 28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being;
SH Acts 20:22-24
22 And now, behold, I go bound in the spirit unto Jerusalem, not knowing the things that shall befall me there: 23 Save that the Holy Ghost witnesseth in every city, saying that bonds and afflictions abide me. 24 But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.
SH Heb. 12:28
28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
SH II Pet. 1:21
21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
SH 2:8-11
God is not moved by the breath of praise to do more
than He has already done, nor can the infinite do less
than bestow all good, since He is unchang-
ing wisdom and Love.
SH 445:19-21
Christian Science silences human will, quiets fear with
Truth and Love, and illustrates the unlabored motion
of the divine energy in healing the sick.
SH 283:4-6, 8-10 (to 1st .)
Mind is the source of all movement, and there is no
inertia to retard or check its perpetual and harmonious
Matter and its effects – sin, sickness, and
death – are states of mortal mind which act, react, and
then come to a stop.
SH 208:5
The Scriptures say, “In Him we live, and move, and
have our being.” What then is this seeming power, in-
dependent of God, which causes disease and
cures it? What is it but an error of belief, –
a law of mortal mind, wrong in every sense,
embracing sin, sickness, and death? It is the very anti-
pode of immortal Mind, of Truth, and of spiritual law.
It is not in accordance with the goodness of God’s char-
acter that He should make man sick, then leave man to
heal himself; it is absurd to suppose that matter can both
cause and cure disease, or that Spirit, God, produces
disease and leaves the remedy to matter.
SH 343:6-10
Is not finite mind ignorant of God’s method? This
makes it doubly unfair to impugn and misrepresent the
facts, although, without this cross-bearing,
one might not be able to say with the apostle,
“None of these things move me.
SH 199:8-12
Muscles are not self-acting. If mind does not move
them, they are motionless. Hence the great fact that
Mind alone enlarges and empowers man through its
mandate, – by reason of its demand for and supply of
SH 19:29
Jesus urged the commandment, “Thou shalt have no
other gods before me,” which may be ren-
dered: Thou shalt have no belief of Life as
mortal; thou shalt not know evil, for there is one Life,-
even God, good. He rendered “unto Caesar the things
which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are
God’s.” He at last paid no homage to forms of doctrine
or to theories of man, but acted and spake as he was moved,
not by spirits but by Spirit.
SH 361:16
As a drop of water is one with
the ocean, a ray of light one with the sun, even so God
and man, Father and son, are one in being. The Scrip-
ture reads: “For in Him we live, and move, and have
our being.
SH 240:18-21, 29
Mortals move onward towards good or evil as time
glides on. If mortals are not progressive, past failures
will be repeated until all wrong work is ef-
faced or rectified.
The divine method
of paying sin’s wages involves unwinding one’s snarls
and learning from experience how to divide between sense
and Soul.
SH 419:12-20 ; 420:3-4
cause disease or a relapse. Disease has no intelligence
with which to move itself about or to change itself from
one form to another. If disease moves, mind, not mat-
ter, moves it; therefore be sure that you move it off.
Meet every adverse circumstance as its master. Ob-
serve mind instead of body, lest aught unfit for develop-
ment enter thought. Think less of material conditions
and more of spiritual.
Mind produces all action.
SH 428:15-19
We should consecrate existence, not “to the unknown
God” whom we “ignorantly worship,” but to the eternal
builder, the everlasting Father, to the Life
which mortal sense cannot impair nor mortal
belief destroy.
SH 454:17
Love for God and man is the true
incentive in both healing and teaching. Love inspires,
illumines, designates, and leads the way. Right motives
give pinions to thought, and strength and freedom to
speech and action. Love is priestess at the altar of
Truth. Wait patiently for divine Love to move upon the
waters of mortal mind, and form the perfect concept.
Patience must “have her perfect work.
SH 505:16-17
Spirit imparts the understanding which uplifts con-
sciousness and leads into all truth.
SH 515:22-24
All that
God imparts moves in accord with Him, reflecting good-
ness and power.
