Jan. 30-Feb. 5: “Spirit.”
Golden Text: “. . . if you plant in the field of the Spirit, from the Spirit you will gather the harvest of eternal life.” (Galatians 6:8)
This Bible Lesson helps us experience the powerful healing effect of understanding God as Spirit (a synonym for God). And further, the peace, joy and freedom of knowing ourselves, God’s “offspring” or “children,” as spiritual, not material.
“…the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth”. (John 4: 23, 24)
“The starting-point of divine Science is that God, Spirit, is All-in-all, and that there is no other might nor Mind, — that God is Love, and therefore He is divine Principle.
“To grasp the reality and order of being in its Science, you must begin by reckoning God as the divine Principle of all that really is. Spirit, Life, Truth, Love, combine as one, — and are the Scriptural names for God.” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, p. 275:6-14)
