It is theBethlehem, 205:relation with God or with our brother, a son of God. It is the doing of those things from purelyBethlehem, 205:man seemed to feel that by making an offering to God he succeeded in making redemption of hisBethlehem, 206:Christ's major task was the establishing of God's kingdom upon earth. He showed us the way in whichBethlehem, 206:to tread the way of the cross alone, and enter God's kingdom by right of achievement. But the wayBethlehem, 206:religious aspiration, and this all the sons of God have grasped and taught. Man triumphs throughBethlehem, 207:and set Him free to ascend to the throne of God. For Him there was no holding on to the lower andBethlehem, 207:the barriers of death). He remains the eternal God-Man, the Savior of the world. In perfection HeBethlehem, 207:the world. In perfection He fulfiled the will of God, and said to us the words which give us aBethlehem, 207:he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God." (St. John, VII, 17.) The simplicity of thisBethlehem, 207:is almost baffling. We are told simply to do God's will and then truth will be revealed to us.Bethlehem, 207:of Gethsemane, when He fought with Himself to do God's will. There were moments when His humanBethlehem, 208:and preach the good tidings of the kingdom of God. That was His theme, and we have forgotten it andBethlehem, 208:and prayed with the same fervor as Christ that God's will might be done. Many men have beenBethlehem, 209:centuries the materializing of the kingdom of God on earth, which it was His mission to found.Bethlehem, 209:exclusive life of happiness, whilst the rest of God's children are left outside. The Cross wasBethlehem, 209:between the kingdom of men and the kingdom of God, between one great kingdom in nature which hadBethlehem, 209:produced the Christ and those other children of God whose lives bore constant testimony to theBethlehem, 209:and fixed the boundary between the kingdom of God and the kingdoms of the world, between the worldBethlehem, 209:and instituted the Mysteries of the kingdom of God. The effort to carry out to perfection the willBethlehem, 209:effort to carry out to perfection the will of God brought to an end the most complete life that hadBethlehem, 210:mission, which is to materialize the kingdom of God on earth, today, here and now. The time is pastBethlehem, 210:earth; it consists of those who do the will of God at any cost, as Christ did, and who can love oneBethlehem, 210:and without reserve, to the highest service of God and man. The suffering incidental to suchBethlehem, 211:for humanity down the ages, and the attitude of God towards human beings from the earliest times,Bethlehem, 211:thief Christ admitted him into the kingdom of God on the basis of his recognition of divinity.Bethlehem, 211:love and hate; the desire to live as children of God and the inclination to live as ordinary humanBethlehem, 211:between the citizen of the kingdom of God and a member of the human family. It was love whichBethlehem, 211:to our notice that the way into the kingdom of God was the way of love and of service. He servedBethlehem, 212:the realization of the fact of the presence of God in the human heart which is the basis of theBethlehem, 212:vision, while the knowledge that one is a son of God gives one the strength to follow the Savior'sBethlehem, 212:affirmation of the basic law of the kingdom of God, the Law of Love, will finally save the world.Bethlehem, 213:only in the realization of the Fatherhood of God and its corollary, the brotherhood of man.Bethlehem, 213:He said. It was this sense of unity with God and His fellow men which led Him to institute the LastBethlehem, 213:him are of one will, to place the Kingdom of God above all, and to serve in behalf of this faithBethlehem, 213:same thought." (The Mystery of the Kingdom of God, by Albert Schweitzer, p. 56.) Bethlehem, 213:Behold thy mother!" (St. John, XIX, 26.) "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" (St. Matt.,Bethlehem, 213:thy mother!" (St. John, XIX, 26.) "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" (St. Matt., XXVII,Bethlehem, 214:for us the Word that inaugurated the kingdom of God. Each of His utterances had relation to thatBethlehem, 214:produced the manifestation of the kingdom of God on earth. In every case the seven words have beenBethlehem, 214:understood by us in the light of the kingdom of God, and with a wider connotation than theBethlehem, 215:shedding of blood; but there was the need to ask God's pardon for the sin committed. The two factsBethlehem, 215:to the fore in this word are the Fatherhood of God, and the fact that ignorance, if productive ofBethlehem, 215:from the Cross Christ tells us two things: That God is our Father, and that we approach Him throughBethlehem, 215:the Father and call on the spirit, which is God, the life of all forms, to adjust relationships,Bethlehem, 215:not a theological belief that puts us right with God, but an attitude to life and an attitude toBethlehem, 216:was also the symbol to us of the cosmic Christ, God suffering through the sufferings of His createdBethlehem, 217:happiness. But bliss, which is of the nature of God Himself, is an expression of divinity and ofBethlehem, 218:of the divine Triplicity, the soul, the son of God, whose nature is love. As we have seen, MaryBethlehem, 218:was wrung from Him the recognition that though God suffers in the Person of His Son, He alsoBethlehem, 219:triple personality gave vent to the cry, "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" Christ hadBethlehem, 219:personality gave vent to the cry, "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" Christ had passedBethlehem, 219:Let us not forget that fact. In that experience God had been near, and the transfigured Christ hadBethlehem, 219:Christ had seemed in His initiation to link God and man. He had just uttered the Word which hadBethlehem, 219:in the dark with the problem of the relation of God and the soul. Spirit and soul had to be fusedBethlehem, 220:Even the consciousness that He was the Son of God, the soul incarnate in the flesh (for which HeBethlehem, 220:He seemed deserted, not only by humanity, but by God. That upon which He had relied, the divinityBethlehem, 220:Christ blazed the trail to the very heart of God Himself. Only when the soul has learnt to standBethlehem, 220:and so proved to Himself, and to us, that God existed, and that the immortality of divinity is anBethlehem, 220:- The Crucifixion Although each son of God at different stages upon his way of initiation preparesBethlehem, 221:more dark. But it is in the dark that we know God. Four Words of Power had now been uttered by theBethlehem, 221:and in it He indicated the principle upon which God works in relation to the evil done by men.Bethlehem, 222:the cry of protest and of questioning: "My God, my God! Why hast Thou forsaken me?" Then followedBethlehem, 222:cry of protest and of questioning: "My God, my God! Why hast Thou forsaken me?" Then followed threeBethlehem, 222:sweeps through the consciousness of every son of God who has achieved divinity, and which indicatesBethlehem, 222:salvation of human beings until all the sons of God shall have found their way back to the Father'sBethlehem, 223:of Power do we really understand the meaning of God and His love. The way of the Savior becomesBethlehem, 223:The way of the Savior becomes then our way. God's life and purpose stand revealed. It is thisBethlehem, 224:"Father" - for ever we are the children of God, and "If children, then heirs; heirs of God, andBethlehem, 224:of God, and "If children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint heirs with Christ; if so be that weBethlehem, 224:calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and throughBethlehem, 224:life in Christ and in us which makes us sons of God, and it is that sonship (with its quality ofBethlehem, 224:the bottom." (St. Matt., XXVII, 51.) Access to God was established, and the inner spiritual forcesBethlehem, 224:hindrance into manifestation. This was an act of God, a stupendous recognition by the Father ofBethlehem, 225:separating barriers were abolished, and man and God could meet and hold intercourse. In an ancientBethlehem, 225:or to materialize upon the earth, the kingdom of God; secondly, to show us what the love of GodBethlehem, 225:of God; secondly, to show us what the love of God signified and how it expressed itself in serviceBethlehem, 225:symbol and also as an example. He revealed to us God's Mind, and showed us the pattern upon whichBethlehem, 226:and then told us that we were the children of God. He was with us then, and He is with us now, forBethlehem, 226:have been led to believe, and that the heart of God the Father is far kinder [227] than those whoBethlehem, 227:have sought to interpret it. We have preached a God of love and have spread a doctrine of hate. WeBethlehem, 227:of chaos, endeavoring to build a kingdom of God divorced from current daily life and the generalBethlehem, 227:Christ founded a kingdom on earth, wherein all God's children would have equal opportunity ofBethlehem, 227:Dr. Schweitzer, whose vision of the kingdom of God is so rare and real, points out this truth andBethlehem, 228:in the Kingdom." - The Mystery of the Kingdom of God, by Albert Schweitzer, p. 75.

Because this is the end ofBethlehem, 234:life in the world: "They spoke in plain terms of God. They did not think of Jesus of Nazareth as aBethlehem, 234:men already meant something when they spoke of God, and, without challenging the inheritance whichBethlehem, 234:still have known nothing more of the meaning of God. But their experience had been one of such aBethlehem, 234:that the Jew had ever claimed for the Creator-God. Yet they could not think of it as other than HisBethlehem, 234:not think of it as other than His work, since God, as all their national tradition taught, is One.Bethlehem, 234:Henceforth the central hypothesis which men call God was known as love, and everywhere He was madeBethlehem, 234:of the Christian community." - Psychology and God, by L.
