Day 19 Wednesday The Blood of Jesus/Surrender

19th Day   Wednesday

The Blood of Jesus

(Note from Rev. Toni:   Remember that Charles Fillmore was writing this in the early 1900’s;  take a deep breath as you read this entry.  Open up to the metaphysical meaning of these ideas.  Also note that the 2017 edition uses the concept of Surrender.)

From Keep A True Lent by Charles Fillmore

Read John 6:41-65.

Through the power of His word Jesus purified and spiritualized the natural blood in His body until it became a spiritual life stream, into which all may enter and be cleansed.  Through the power of His word Jesus broadcast the spiritual electrons of His body into the race thought atmosphere, that they may be apprehended by all who believe in Him.  This Lenten season I realize that I am baptized in His spiritual life stream, and am purified and cleansed. The electrons of His blood, which I appropriate, are centers of energy and life within, and they uplift and strengthen me.  Jesus called the bread He had blessed His body and the wine His blood. As I

appropriate words of Truth, “eat them” so to speak, I partake of the substance and life of Spirit and build the Christ body. Thus I partake of the body and blood of Jesus, the true sacrament that vitalizes the body by renewing the mind.  The blood of Jesus in me is the life contained in God. The crown of life is attained by living eternally in the presence of God. Attainment depends on the understanding of the science of right thinking. My way to eternal life lies in my acknowledgment of my oneness with the Christ of God.  In His name I am gradually transforming and regenerating my blood and my body. Thus I am saved by Jesus Christ.  Realizing victory over every limited belief of the mortal, I affirm: “I rejoice in the restorative power of Jesus’ blood now working mightily in me to renew, to restore, and to make every whit whole.”

Surrender

By Rev. Elise Cowen

I surrender to the guidance of Spirit in all aspects of my life.

Today I take a moment to center myself in Spirit. As I breathe in, I ask Spirit if my will and desires are in alignment with my highest good. As I release any preconceived notions about the outcome of any circumstance in my life, I am ready, willing, and able to listen to the guidance of Spirit.  As I pray affirming right results, I open myself to the possibility that my perfect solutions have not yet been revealed to me but are manifesting and will be revealed in the right and perfect way. As I surrender, a peaceful calm moves through me.  This peaceful feeling stays with me as I go about my day. If I find myself in worry or fear, I stop, breathe into Spirit, and surrender.  The peaceful spirit of God guides my soul.
