God's allness and great love for all His creation, coupled with our love for Him, each other, and ourselves—
that's what the Christian Science Bible Lessons are all about. At these services you will hear about God's deep love for each of us, His children. The sermon is from the Bible Lesson/Sermon, read throughout the week by Christian Scientists, around the world, which allows people to heal, comfort, reform, and even transform themselves. 
Please come to our Sunday Services to hear the Word and how to apply it to your daily life.

The Holy Bible, KJV

1. I Cor. 1:3, 4

Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ;

2. Isa. 11:1–3 there, 5, 6

... there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: And the

spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and

might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord; And shall make him of quick understanding in

the fear of the Lord: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of

his ears: ...

And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins. The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.

3. Luke 2:1, 3–7, 22, 25–33, 40

And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Cæsar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.

And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city

of Nazareth, into Judæa, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house

and lineage of David:) To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth

her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

And when the days of her purification according to the law of Moses were accomplished, they brought him

to Jerusalem, to present him to the Lord;

And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him. And it was revealed unto

him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord's Christ. And he came

by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the

custom of the law, Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said, Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word: For mine eyes have seen thy salvation, Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people; A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel. And Joseph and his mother marvelled at those things which were spoken of him.

And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.

4. John 1:14, 16, 17

And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

5. I Pet. 4:10

As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.

6. II Tim. 1:7, 9

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. ...

Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,

7. Acts 5:12 (to ;), 16–23, 25, 26 (to 2nd ,), 27, 28 (to ?), 29–35, 38–42

And by the hands of the apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people;

There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and them

which were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed every one. Then the high priest rose up, and

all they that were with him, (which is the sect of the Sadducees,) and were filled with indignation, And laid their hands on the apostles, and put them in the common prison. But the angel of the Lord by night

opened the prison doors, and brought them forth, and said, Go, stand and speak in the temple to the

people all the words of this life. And when they heard that, they entered into the temple early in the

morning, and taught. But the high priest came, and they that were with him, and called the council

together, and all the senate of the children of Israel, and sent to the prison to have them brought. But

when the officers came, and found them not in the prison, they returned, and told, Saying, The prison truly found we shut with all safety, and the keepers standing without before the doors: but when we had

opened, we found no man within.

Then came one and told them, saying, Behold, the men whom ye put in prison are standing in the temple, and teaching the people. Then went the captain with the officers, and brought them without violence: for

they feared the people,

And when they had brought them, they set them before the council: and the high priest asked them,

Saying, Did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach in this name?

Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men. The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree. Him hath God exalted with his right hand

to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins. And we are his

witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.

When they heard that, they were cut to the heart, and took counsel to slay them. Then stood there up one

in the council, a Pharisee named Gamaliel, a doctor of the law, had in reputation among all the people, and commanded to put the apostles forth a little space; And said unto them, Ye men of Israel, take heed to yourselves what ye intend to do as touching these men.

And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought: But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God. And to him they agreed: and when they had called the apostles, and beaten them, they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go. And they departed from

the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name. And

daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.

8. II Cor. 9:8, 11, 15

And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things,

may abound to every good work:

Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God. ...

Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.

9. Rom. 16:24 (to 1st .)

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.

10. Col. 2:6, 7

As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.

 

Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy

1. SH 67:23

Grace and Truth are potent beyond all other means and methods.

2. SH 494:11–15

It is not well to imagine that Jesus demonstrated the divine power to heal only for a select number or for a limited period of time, since to all mankind and in every hour, divine Love supplies all good.

The miracle of grace is no miracle to Love.

3. SH 316:21

Christ illustrates that blending with God, his divine Principle, which gives man dominion over all the earth.

4. SH 107:1–14; 108:1–4

In the year 1866, I discovered the Christ Science or divine laws of Life, Truth, and Love, and

named my discovery Christian Science. God had been graciously preparing me during many years for the reception of this final revelation of the absolute divine Principle of scientific mental healing.

This apodictical Principle points to the revelation of Immanuel, “God with us,” — the sovereign

ever-presence, delivering the children of men from every ill “that flesh is heir to.” Through Christian Science, religion and medicine are inspired with a diviner nature and essence; fresh pinions are given to faith and understanding, and thoughts acquaint themselves intelligently with God.

Whence came to me this heavenly conviction, — a conviction antagonistic to the testimony of the physical senses? According to St. Paul, it was “the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of

His power."

5. SH 150:4

To-day the healing power of Truth is widely demonstrated as an immanent, eternal Science, instead of a phenomenal exhibition. Its appearing is the coming anew of the gospel of “on earth peace, good-will

toward men.” This coming, as was promised by the Master, is for its establishment as a permanent dispensation among men; but the mission of Christian Science now, as in the time of its earlier demonstration, is not primarily one of physical healing. Now, as then, signs and wonders are wrought in

the metaphysical  healing of physical disease; but these signs are only to demonstrate its divine

origin, — to attest the reality  of the higher mission of the Christ-power to take away the sins of the world.

6. SH 274:23–25; 275:6–12, 14–15, 20–23

Divine Science is absolute, and permits no half-way position in learning its Principle and rule — establishing

it by demonstration.

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. ... All substance, intelligence, wisdom, being, immortality, cause, and effect

belong to God.

Divine metaphysics, as revealed to spiritual understanding, shows clearly that all is Mind, and that Mind is God, omnipotence, omnipresence, omniscience, — that is, all power, all presence, all Science.

7. SH 267:5–6

God is one. The allness of Deity is His oneness.

8. SH 202:3

The scientific unity which exists between God and man must be wrought out in life-practice, and God's will must be universally done.

9. SH 134:14–17

Man-made doctrines are waning. They have not waxed strong in times of trouble. Devoid of the

Christ-power, how can they illustrate the doctrines of Christ or the miracles of grace?

10. SH 317:16–20

The individuality of man is no less tangible because it is spiritual and because his life is not at the mercy of matter. The understanding of his spiritual individuality makes man more real, more formidable in truth,

and enables him to conquer sin, disease, and death.

11. SH 259:6 The

The divine nature was best expressed in Christ Jesus, who threw upon mortals the truer reflection of God

and lifted their lives higher than their poor thought-models would allow, — thoughts which presented man

as fallen, sick, sinning, and dying. The Christlike understanding of scientific being and divine healing

includes a perfect Principle and idea, — perfect God and perfect man, — as the basis of thought and demonstration.

12. SH 4:3–5

What we most need is the prayer of fervent desire for growth in grace, expressed in patience, meekness,

love, and good deeds.

13. SH 17:5

Give us grace for to-day; feed the famished affections;
