Practice Instructions

See Practice Instructions Review 6


If I bear the Name of God, I am His Son. I have the heritage of God’s family—and what an inheritance that is! I am not the offspring of random molecules of DNA. I am not the product of survival of the fittest in a vicious battle for supremacy in life. I am not the product of my human family, my upbringing, my education, my failures, or my culture. What I am I have inherited from God Himself.

As the Son of God I am “not slave to time” (1:2). I am not limited to the short span of my body’s “life” on earth. I do not require long years of development to attain my inheritance; it is mine now. Nor am I the product of my past. I do not need to fear the future. I am free of all limitations time might try to impose on me.

I am “unbound by laws which rule the world of sick illusions” (1:2). Laws of time, of space, of economics, of health and nutrition, or any laws we think are immutable and inevitable here, do not rule me. I am a child of God. I am spirit. I am free. I am “forever and forever one with Him” (1:2).
