Tokens of Divine Love

When our revered Leader ordained the Bible and Science and Health as the pastor of the Christian Science church, she in due time also provided a series of Lesson-Sermons calculated to give to the world, through the light of revelation and reason, a more perfect knowledge of the way of salvation. We are told in the Sentinel of March 2, 1899, that the subjects chosen follow the order our Leader was accustomed to employ in teaching her classes; and our text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," gives the fundamentals of these sermons in the chapter entitled Recapitulation.

The first of these Lesson-Sermons, very fittingly and of necessity, has "God" as its subject. The second one, "Sacrament," may not seem to be closely connected with the first, but a little study shows that it is the bugle-call to us to declare our fidelity to God, to walk uprightly and work righteousness, thus preparing ourselves for a larger unfoldment of the truth to be presented in the succeeding lessons. The following six sermons, "Life," "Truth," "Love," "Spirit," "Soul," "Mind," unfold in varying ways a fuller concept of the ever-living I am. The next two, "Christ Jesus" and "Man," deal with the divine idea: its presentation to mankind by Jesus, and the revelation that the divine idea or image is the spiritual man.
