SAVED BY GOD'S LIBERATING MESSAGES

PRESERVATION IS A HOT TOPIC wherever you turn. Marketers offer various products, diets, and fitness routines promising to preserve our bodies. Political candidates promote plans for national preservation. And the preservation of the earth itself occupies personal and global agendas. As I studied this week's Christian Science Bible Lesson on "God the Preserver of Man," I found wonderful guidance—for individuals, communities, and our world—in its angel-messages of divine preservation.

As I approached this Lesson, I asked myself, What is God preserving us from? Are there actual destructive forces from which we need to be delivered? Mary Baker Eddy posed the question this way in Science and Health: "What is this supposed power, which opposes itself to God?" (p. 224, citation 2). This Lesson shows that the "supposed power" is nothing more than various mistaken beliefs that we are separate from God and personally responsible for our own lives.
