Living Through the Passover Pandemic

The Israelites of old wiped lamb's blood on their doorways, barred their doors, and stayed within the boundaries of their homes in silent submission to Spirit's command until the fear of death was gone. Those who did not obey the Lord's orders witnessed the loss of their first-born sons - a pandemic in Egypt.

In Jesus' day, it appeared that even the first-born Son of God could be killed by the pandemic hatred of Christ. Ah, but through Jesus' trial, murder, and resurrection, he became the door through which we would joyfully leave our old method of hiding in houses of clay and venture out into glorious spiritual freedom and close communion with one another.

Now, our home is our consciousness. The doorway through which all thoughts must pass is Christ, Truth. In this way, we are compassed about by divine Love and can only see, hear, taste, and touch the aroma of infinite Good. Every object and idea of creation is what God has in Mind, and Christ shows us this Mind. We cannot die out of God's life and love because our consciousness is permanently sentinelled by Christ. "Of them which thou gavest me have I lost none" (John 18:9). It is time to prove for ourselves and for all mankind that God's children are not, and can never be, lost.

"It has long been a question of earnest import, How shall mankind worship the most adorable, but most unadored, - and where shall begin that praise that shall never end? Beneath, above, beyond, methinks I hear the soft, sweet sigh of angels answering, 'So live, that your lives attest your sincerity and resound His praise'" (Misc 106:22).
