April 13-19: “Doctrine of Atonement.”
Golden Text: “… an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.” (II Peter 1:11)
This Bible Lesson focuses our attention on the importance of “staying the course,” praying daily to follow the teachings of Jesus, Christ; and in doing so, to see and demonstrate our constant “oneness” with Divine Truth, Love, Spirit.
“…to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.” (I Corinthians 8:6)
“Atonement is the exemplification of man’s unity with God, whereby man reflects divine Truth, Life, and Love. Jesus of Nazareth taught and demonstrated man’s oneness with the Father, and for this we owe him endless homage.” (Science and health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, p. 18: 1-5.)
About the Bible Lesson
The weekly Bible Lesson is read and studied daily by students of Christian Science around the world, and is read on Sundays as the sermon in Christian Science churches everywhere.
While our Bellingham church has suspended Sunday services, Sunday School, and Wednesday testimony meetings in order to honor Governor Inslee’s “stay at home” order, this Bible Lesson brings the healing blessings of church to our members every day.
You can read or hear it too, at this link. You can also listen live and replay the Sunday church service and Wednesday testimony meeting held at The Mother Church of Christian Science, in Boston, MA. Click here to access those services.
