I Am SOUL-blessed Now
Julio C. Rivas, CS
“For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared unto all men. Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world ….”
For LIFE-LOVE’s redemptive and generous kindness can liberate anyone from foibles and mistakes. As long as we are willing to engage in an inner spiritual battle and accept Christ’s transformational changes (like Jacob did), then even invidious and insidious sin will wash away. SOUL re-makes us with its purity, and it annoints us with its wholeness and bounty.Our SOUL-imbued innocence conquers personal weaknesses, foibles, guilt and setbacks. It even nullifies others’ treachery. LIFE’s wisdom and guidance will guard and exalt us. We can conquer any problems with TRUTH-sense.
Jesus declared, “But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then he saith to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house. And he arose and departed to his house.”
The keener is our Christly sense the more formidable is our ability to defeat troubles. Christly wisdom acts like a brilliant light uncovering and erasing evil’s perfidious machinations. SOUL’s effulgence eliminates the darkness in a person’s character, as well as mental and physical illnesses. Our mind, character and body are re-engineered by the health and intelligence of SOUL.
“Healing the sick and reforming the sinner are one and the same thing in Christian Science. Both cures require the same method and are inseparable in Truth” (M.B. Eddy).
Character deformities and physical breakdowns are produced by mistaken, material concepts. The only difference is that character faults demand uncovering them before they can be uprooted and eliminated. In either case, spiritual enlightenment --- Truth’s revelation – is the healer.
