Lent 2013 39th Day of Lent)

Good Friday, March 29, 2013
Our resurrection is guaranteed as long as we neither run from the Cross nor cling to it. Crucifixion is not the high point of anyone's life. It is simply a necessary step to the Spiritual glories that lie beyond.
Jesus was always the Christ in potential, just as we are. And His realization of the Christ, His ability to express it, to be it, grew through His mediataions with His followers --- yes, and with His enemies. His realization of His Christ potential was quicker than ours, but He trod the same Spiritual path that we do, showing us that it could be done.
As Charles Fillmore wrote in His Good Friday Lenten lesson, "Jesus' crucifixion on calvary was a final step in a work that had been going on in Him for 33 years." Fillmore also explained that crucifixion is "a mental process with a physical effect," which helps us to more clearly see the crucifixion experiences that we have moved through ourselves. When we cross out in consciousness patterns of error thought that have become deeply ingrained in us, we are experiencing crucifixion.
We are releasing the mortal to reach the immortal within us, dissolving the limits of the physical realm to more fully express our Spiritual nature.
