Quickened By the Spirit
You remember the spiritual inspiration that Paul had, an inspiration that is also ours as we claim the light and
power and love that are God's expression through us:
"If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will give life to your mortal bodies also through his Spirit which dwells in you" (Rom. 7:11).
It isn't people at Unity who quicken and heal. It isn't the
human desire of the individual's heart that makes the life flow through his organism more freely. It isn't the thing that we usually think of as Christianity that brings one into the quickening, healing currents of Christ life. It is the stirring in us of the same Spirit of Christ that was and is in Jesus Christ--the Spirit of God, standing forth in individual consciousness and expression--the stirring up in our minds of divine ideas from the mind of Being. It is the soul's willingness and effort to live in its daily thinking and acts in the Spirit of Christ--that same Spirit which made Jesus forget Himself in doing the good
