"Be of good cheer"

In "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany" (pp. 131, 132) Mrs. Eddy has written: "There is with us at this hour this great, great blessing; and may I say with the consciousness of Mind that the fulfilment of divine Love in our lives is the demand of this hour—the special demand. We begin with the law as just announced, 'Prove me now herewith, ... if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing,' and we go to the Gospels, and there we hear: 'In the world ye shall have tribulation; but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.'" Jesus overcame all materiality, and in spite of tribulation he rejoiced at all times.
