Lesson Application Ideas by Heather K. Libbe, CS

  • Get Real! Welcome to the kingdom of heaven!
    Sunday, September 22nd, 2013
    A question that was posed at the very beginning of a talk at Principia College in which the speaker shared some thoughts about how students might pray about the transition to the “real world” has really shifted my thinking about these experiences: What do you consider reality? Arresting isn’t it?!? What do...
  • Put Your Whole Self in to Walking Humbly with God!
    Monday, July 8th, 2013
    The Latin origin of the word sacrament involves a sense of obligation. And part of the definition in Webster’s 1828 dictionary reads a ceremony by which “obligations to him [Christ] are renewed and ratified.” Our obligation to God and His Christ (light and truth) is summed up in the Golden Text and elaborated...
  • Share the gift of Christian Science!
    Monday, June 24th, 2013
    This week’s Christian Science Bible Lesson gives us the opportunity to dive in deeper with our understanding of Christian Science as the law of God, good, and might even give us a little nudge to take further steps towards making it our own in following Christ Jesus, rejoicing in spiritual leaven, healing the sick...
  • See -- and consider -- the works of God...
    Monday, June 3rd, 2013
    It’s tempting to think we’re capable of creating something on our own... whether it is a child, an art form, or a solution to a problem. But, we’re never the source, because we aren’t God... the “only cause and creator.” Realizing this never lessens our creative expression, but expands it. Understanding...
  • Don't fall for any Fallen Man Premise!
    Saturday, May 4th, 2013
    Regardless of how convincing the testimony of the physical senses, we must stand firm and reason rightly from the basis of perfect God and perfect man. This confident reasoning reverses the lie that springs from the myth of mortal creation. Man is the offspring of God alone. Fallen man is a misunderstanding; and we...
  • Share the Fun of Being At-One!
    Monday, April 15th, 2013
    In Mary Baker Eddy’s autobiography called Retrospection and Introspection, we read the following: “Sin was, and is, the lying supposition that life, substance, and intelligence are both material and spiritual, and yet are separate from God.” (pg 67) First, sin is a lying supposition that life, substance and...
  • Answer NO... and Know Why!
    Monday, April 8th, 2013
    As students of the Christian Science Bible Lesson, we are reminded twice each year to carefully consider the question, “ARE sin, disease, and death real? In actuality we’re challenged by that question many times each day. The physical senses constantly bombard us with testimony that would say that this triad of...
  • Meditate most on infinite substance...
    Monday, March 11th, 2013
    In Miscellaneous Writings, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, says the following: “He advances most in divine Science who meditates most on infinite spiritual substance and intelligence.” (pg 309) How wonderful it is that we have the opportunity to do so with this week’s...
  • Live Complete as the perfect image & likeness of a perfect God!
    Monday, March 4th, 2013
    Just as a sunbeam expresses, and has all the attributes of, the sun, so man expresses, and has all the attributes of, God. To understand sunlight, you must understand the sun… and how a sunbeam is like the sun. Similarly, to understand man, you have to understand God, and how man is like God. As you study this...
  • Shine with Spirit's reflected light!
    Monday, February 4th, 2013
    As I studied this lesson on Spirit, I was struck by all the references to light and illumination, but also by the many references to the “spirit of God” or the “spirit of the Lord.” We often think of Spirit (or of that which is spiritual) in contrast to matter (or that which is material.) But, I have found...
  • Feel God's Grace and Respond!
    Monday, January 7th, 2013
    Until now I had never thought about grace when I thought about Sacrament. But, the Golden Text speaks of the “grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost.” And a similar message is echoed in the last citation of the Bible which promises that God is able to make all...
