IS WISDOM'S WAY OF PRESENTING HERSELF.
Vol. 12. NOVEMBER, 1899. No. 2.
“Being enriched in everything to all bountifulness, which causes through us thanksgiving to God.
“For the administration of this service not only supplieth the want of the saints, but is abundant also by many thanksgivings unto God.”
HANKSGIVING is an annual religious festival, which is national in its
F character. It is a day set apart for thanksgiving—for the rendering of thanks to God.
None know better than the Divine Scientists how it is that we are all enriched in every good thing, the knowledge of which naturally causes a thankful feeling.
According to the Scriptures a Thanksgiving feast is a sacrifice, and in the demonstrations that Jesus gave of Truth, is not only offering one's self to God and sacrificing the belief of a separate personality, but is accepting Godhood as our Being.
It is accepting one's self to be universal, limitless, and at-one with God— that all belonging to the Father is ours, and all belonging to us is the Father's.
What is begotten of God is His Word. It ever remains His Word. It cannot sin, he diseased, or suffer; no element is within it that can by any means become impure. The Word became flesh, and it was full of grace and truth; this is the grace and truth that came by Jesus Christ—the fullness of which we have all received.
Let us render thanks this day that we are full of grace and truth; “that of His fullness have all we received.”
This is a thank-offering, in symbolic language, called sacrifice, and is an essential element in Divine worship.
“Do not err, my beloved brethren, every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness neither shadow of turning.”
The warning not to err refers both to what follows and to what precedes this verse in this wonderful epistle. More especially does it refer to what precedes, as it shows that God in no sense is the author of confusion, or of so-called ignorance. This conception of the truth of the origin and birth of man is not traceable to God, who is knowledge itself. Science sets at naught the claim that misconception comes from conception, error from Truth, darkness from light, or ignorance from knowledge. God cannot be tempted with evil (or made to accept what He is not and has not demonstrated), neither tempteth He any man, Let us be thankful today that we know all things are good, and that every living thing is the Word of God, full of grace and truth. Let us be thankful that we understand, as did St. Peter, that “Every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving.” “That we may publish with the voice of thanksgiving and tell all Thy wondrous works,”—let us begin by telling how thankful we are that we know the Truth of our Being; how thankful we are to know that Truth is freedom; that knowledge is free from ignorance; that light is free from darkness; that Being is free from non-being; that substance is free from failure—it is without variableness or shadow of turning. It is with thankfulness that we testify that Truth makes free, free from every claim the reverse of itself. It enriches with every good thing to all bountifulness. It satisfies every desire, and leaves no want or sense of vacancy; it fulfills all law and all righteousness; it proves that there are no living things that are both good and evil; that man is not a contradiction in his nature—he does not have two selves that war against each other. To be one in nature is holy, so it is unholy to believe that we are both good and evil, subject to both life and death, to health and disease, to success and failure. The administration of the service of God supplies every want, and is abundant also with thankfulness to God. Dear friends, are we not enriched to all bountifulness, knowing as we do that all things by nature are good; that having sought and found the kingdom of God, all things are ours; that every temporal want is supplied, and every spiritual gift expressed ? Spiritual good comprises the whole; what is termed temporal good, when viewed aright, is seen to be spiritual. There is truly no demonstration without practice; one must live the life to know the doctrine, whether it be good or otherwise. The lights, of which it is said “God is the Father,” are in His son. “Now are ye the sons of God.” This light, spoken of as one, is the true light that lighteth every man. As the sun is said to be the source of light to all planets which shine out in our system, so God, Omnipresent, who is light, is the source of all light that shines in our hearts. “Light of the world,” is one of the titles of Jesus. The light of the world, which each one can say, I am, and which Jesus told his disciples they were, is God manifest in the world. It is with thankfulness that we teach this Truth of Unity—in this we know that we have fellowship with Christ, that we are heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ. We are not seekers after Truth, but are realizers of it; we are not hoping to gain Truth, but are demonstrators of the Truth that we are. Light may shine into darkness, but it cannot come out of darkness; in this fact there is no deception, God is light; what is born of God is also light—it is cheery, happy and agreeable. We are mentally enriched in this consciousness, for the eye is single to Truth and the whole body is full of light. The first birth is as the second. The last shall be as the first, and the first shall be as the last. In the new birth we are new creatures; in the truth of birth we are truth creatures; in the first birth we are the first and only begotten; in all this we are thankful. We rejoice and are exceeding glad that what is, is; that all things are as they are. The righteous reign of God among men can be furthered only by men doing as God does; by our accepting the Divine idea of man and standing forth as the glory of God. To hear the word of Truth and then talk and act in opposition to it, is not to receive it deep down into one's heart, but to receive it carelessly. This is like looking into a mirror for a moment, then turning away and forgetting what manner of man one is. To talk in opposition to one's God-given nature, is to hear and not understand; to act in an opposing manner, is to see and perceive not. Let us be thankful and rejoice that we are standing firm in that liberty with which Christ makes free. Let us be thankful that we have plenty with which to do a good work; that there are no hindrances, no burdens or opposing powers. We are thankful for life eternal, which includes a knowledge of Truth. We are thankful for knowledge, which includes all power. We are thankful for power, which includes all presence. We are thankful for unchanging health, unfailing success, and bountiful supply. Being thus enriched to all bountifulness, we are grateful to Thee, O God, for all good; that we know Thy Holy Presence is manifested fully within us, and that we are in Thy kingdom, Thy power, and Thy glory. Amen.
