A FULL LIFE

THIS WEEK'S Christian Science Bible Lesson, "Christ Jesus," is framed by the Beatitudes and culminates in Jesus' promise: "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly" (John 10:10, Section VI, citation 17). The Golden Text at the start of the Lesson is drawn from the Contemporary English Version of that verse: "I came so that everyone would have life, and have it in its fullest."

All too rarely have I had the pleasure of watching a new mother with her baby. She's endlessly delighted with each detail of her child (note Jesus' love of little children in Bible cit. 6 and see Science and Health cits. 8 and 12). Jesus said that the very hairs of our head are numbered by the Father (see Bible cit. 16). Like a mother, God knows every detail of our being—and endlessly delights in each unique expression of His own loveliness, lovableness, perfectness, and blessedness.
