Sept. 14-20: “Matter.”
Golden Text: “My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the Lord: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.” (Psalms 84:2)
This week’s Bible Lesson reminds us that God, Divine Spirit, governs ALL. It reminds us that we must look beyond the picture presented by matter and the material senses, to see the “beauty, grandeur, order”* of the creations of Spirit, God.
“Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.” (I Corinthians 2: 12,13)
“Divine Science, rising above physical theories, excludes matter, resolves things into thoughts, and replaces the objects of material sense with spiritual ideas.” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, p. 277:24-27)
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 in Christian Science churches everywhere.
Our Bellingham church has temporarily suspended Sunday services, Sunday School and Wednesday testimony meetings in order to honor Washington State’s Phase 2 Covid-19 guidance. However, the Bible Lesson continues to be read and studied, bringing 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.
