I saw more clearly than ever... - Deepstash

I saw more clearly than ever that the first great and primary business to which I ought to attend every day was to have my soul happy in the Lord.

The first thing to be concerned about was not how much I might serve the Lord, or how I might glorify the Lord; but how I might get my soul into a happy state, and how my inner man might be nourished.

For I might seek to benefit believers, I might seek to relieve the distressed, I might in other ways seek to behave myself as it becomes a child of God in this world; and yet, not being happy in the Lord, and not being nourished and strengthened in my inner man day by day, all this might not be attended to in a right spirit.

What was New Thought all about?

The New Thought movement emerged in the 19th century to help people achieve a better understanding of divine mysteries, through the power of their thoughts.

The term “New Thought” signified that one’s thoughts could unlock secrets to living a better life, free from the constraints of religious doctrines or dogmas.

Associated with a Portland, Maine clockmaker, Phineas Parkhurst Quimby , New Thought proposed a range of philosophical ideas that focused on the mind’s power to cure illness.

Quimby believed that the cause of disease resided in the mind.

Love is from God, why & how?

“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.” 1 John 4:7-8

Well, first let’s see how the love of God was shown to us -1 John 4:9 says: “This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.”

Why is this act an act of Love?

We didn’t love Him ( maybe only its blessings ), he loved us when we were still sinners. His Love was so big that He sent His only Son to die for our sins - read the Gospels for more on this. He didn’t do this because we worshipped Him, or listened or obeyed Him, He loved us because He is Love.
