Reading & Meditation "Gifts" by Rev. Christine Emmerling 1/29/23

Reading & Meditation “Gifts” by Rev. Christine Emmerling 1/29/2023

Today I’ve selected a reading from the Divine Science Daily Study by Rev. Dr. Sylvia Eriksson, minister of the First Divine Science Church of Australia, titled I Am Born of Spirit.

Neglect not the gift that is in thee. Stir up the gift of God which is in thee.

--1Timothy 4:14, 2Timothy 1:6

Today I turn inward and give thanks to God for my very own gifts which God has implanted at the core of my being. Every breath I take gives me the gift of Life, every beat of my heart gives me the gift of God’s Love, every moment of the day I am expressing my indwelling Divine potential to benefit myself and all whom I meet.

St. Paul spoke many times of the gifts of Spirit. To the Galatians he wrote, “The fruit of the Spirit is Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Gentleness, Goodness, Faith, Meekness, and Temperance.” Galatians 5:22,23.

He told the Corinthians, “There are varieties of gifts but the same Spirit.” He also advised, “Strive for the greater gifts.” 1Corinthians 12:1,4,8-10,31.

I give thanks for the greater gifts, and I turn inward with a prayer of gratitude for my growing spiritual awareness. I meditate upon my own unique God-given talents knowing that God’s gifts are infinite; the more I use my talents, the more I will find, for God’s Grace is never ending. The more I use my talents, the clearer will become my God-ordained purpose in life.

Every step I take today is energized and filled with the joy of knowing the Truth of my own being: I am born of Spirit; Spirit indwells me, and I express all my Gifts of Spirit now!

Meditation “Gifts”

We shall now move into meditation. Let us now turn inward to our holy temple. Let us take these moments to acknowledge the Divine Presence we call God.

God Omnipresent, Omniscient, Omnipotent, Omni-Action; meaning God is everywhere present, all knowledge, all power and all action. All there is, is the presence, the intelligence and power and activity of God as all of life and creation.

I am a living expression of God. (Repeat)

The gift of God is this very moment and every moment and is this life I call me. God is expressing love through me. God is expressing joy through me. God is expressing peace through me. God is expressing wisdom through me. The “I” within me is this very activity and life of God that is expressing in, through and as me right here and now. I am with you always whether awake or asleep, at work or at play, happy or sad, peaceful or fearful. Be still and know I am here.

Now a minute in silence...

The gift of God has restored my mind, body and soul. And so it is. Thank you, God! Amen.
