Lesson Application Ideas From 2017
- Experience Everlasting Love!
Monday, April 24th, 2017
Sinlessness is being free from the belief of separation from Love and perfection. Christ (our awareness of our connection to Love) is what frees us from the belief of separation and frees us from sin. Christ Jesus is our way shower who leads the way to discovering our own sinlessness.
- Walk the way of right thinking and acting and live!
Monday, April 17th, 2017
By my count, the word righteous or righteousness appears 11 times in the Lesson between the Golden Text and the end of the 4th section. Might be important to understand what those words mean. I checked the original Hebrew and Greek, as well as Bible dictionaries and regular dictionaries. I loved discovering that in...
- Have your happiest Easter yet, demonstrating your inseparability from God!
Monday, April 10th, 2017
Although the word “atonement” as used in the New Testament, means “reconciliation,” traditional, Christian theology generally emphasizes Jesus’ suffering, and that Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross served as redemption from sin for the whole world. Those who “accept” Jesus as their savior are said to be...
- Let God heal the great impostors, sin, disease, and death.
Sunday, April 2nd, 2017
Let’s face it, it is a pretty hard sell in today’s world to ask people to believe that this topic could even be considered as a question, “Are Sin, Disease, and Death Real?”. After all, the vast majority of humanity firmly believe that sin, disease, and death are not only real, but an undeniable reality......
- Reverse the material view to find the beautiful and true view of God's harmony
Monday, March 27th, 2017
It's interesting that Mrs. Eddy saw fit to establish a lesson on both "Reality" and "Unreality". It is revealed to us just why this is necessary when we look in Section 6 at citations S25 and S26. We have to "...learn that error is unreal..." before we can be ready to progress. And "A knowledge of error and of its...
- Let the light of God reveal reality!
Monday, March 20th, 2017
Reality — as defined by Noah Webster in 1828 — is “truth; fact; in distinction from mere appearance.” When we look at things in a dark room, they can appear vague, distorted, or like something entirely different from what they are. All of that changes when lights are turned on. This week’s lesson focuses...
- Become a Spiritual Trailblazer! Disprove Matter's False Claims!
Monday, March 13th, 2017
In Christian Science, matter isn’t a condition, or a state of being, but a false way of looking at reality. Matter is a termfor the belief in an objective state of a mind apart from God. Since God is the only Mind, a “mind apart from God” is impossible, and therefore its objective state—matter—is also...
- Substance, claim its continual good for you and all!
Monday, March 6th, 2017
The continual, unending flow of Silver Springs waters led me to a realization about my study and relationship with the Bible. I realized that whereas one time I might have thought of the countless stories in the Bible of God’s wonderful provision, care, and protection for His followers and prophets as events in our...
- Dance daily as God's reflection! Wash off every trace of dust man.
Monday, February 27th, 2017
Our lesson this week begins and ends with part of the final verse of Psalm 23: "...I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever." (Golden Text) This keynote conveys the message that man is, in his true and only state, at home in heaven, the house of God. We never leave this house, move away, never go back there...
- Follow Jesus’ example—demonstrate God’s impartial and universal love!
Monday, February 20th, 2017
The glossary of Science and Health defines Christ as “The divine manifestation of God, which comes to the flesh to destroy incarnate error.” (SH 583: 10) As we understand that all mankind is truly held in unity with God through Christ, we can shift from the perspective of a divided country, a world in conflict...
- Choose Wisely and Trustingly with divine Mind's Guidance!
Monday, February 13th, 2017
What guides your decisions? How do we as believers in the one God, approach forks in the road, both large and small? In the Golden Text the prophet Isaiah does not encourage us to rely on ... the voice of God for every direction in life. The allusion to hearing “a word behind thee” is thought to represent either...
- BONUS: Happy day-after Valentine’s Day to each of you cherished Met subscribers!
Saturday, February 11th, 2017
It's never too late to look for Love in all the right places! Better than getting candy and roses (that are all-too-soon gone) is having a post-Valentine's Day treasure hunt for the true Love that lasts forever! Finding lasting Love is accomplished with carefree ease, when you look for and expect to find it in all...
- Bless God to find Soul as an infinite source for all you could ever need.
Monday, February 6th, 2017
In this world of super markets and civilization it is far too easy to think we have what we need because of a job, a pension, or a store. We become blindly dependent on mankind’s great development and infrastructure. We also become prideful about our education and talents and in so doing we often lose sight of the...
- Be Spirit’s song, “carefree and strong… perfect for all to see.”
Monday, January 30th, 2017
I found the Golden Text in this week's lesson on Spirit, to be beautifully and inextricably woven into the fabric of each section [and blended into the harmonic whole of this Lesson].... For now we will have to be content with expressing infinite ideas in human terms and find the spiritual substance behind the human...
- Bonus Met: Happy Groundhog Day is Back!
Sunday, January 29th, 2017
No matter if I (Phil) saw my own shadow or not today, YOU will never see your own shadow or be fearful, as long as you face the sun (Son)! And, no matter how often nasty winter storm patterns seem to be repeated, "It matters not what be thy lot, so Love doth guide; For storm or shine, pure peace is thine, whate'er...
- Trust Love as your Shepherd: always-there; meeting needs; uniting, comforting, governing!
Monday, January 23rd, 2017
In each section of the lesson, let’s notice how Love, the Shepherd is able to fade, evict, alleviate, and remove fear.
- Take the little book of truth, and eat it up! Be a thinker!
Monday, January 16th, 2017
God is opening our eyes and ears to truly understand HIS Word, and things become clear as we simply acknowledge this divine influence. Each of us can expect to get the messages we need in just the way that we can understand. God’s promises are forever! So, keep seeking … and God will show Himself and make His...
- Yearn to reflect perfect Life daily! Thirst for the Real Thing!
Monday, January 9th, 2017
While we study the Lesson this week let’s remember that we can’t find life through casual perusal, or through material symbols, means, and methods. Let’s yearn for the understanding of God as Life, and incorporate it into our daily experience.
- Worship in the “beauty of holiness” within and without!
Monday, January 2nd, 2017
If you want to know what “Sacrament” means in the Christian Science church dig into this Bible Lesson and you are going to have a pretty good insight, a firm foundation, a spiritual understanding that will definitely be manifest in a loving and powerful outward manifestation!
