TO KNOW GOD'S NAME AND NATURE

THE GOLDEN TEXT introducing this week's Christian Science Bible Lesson on "God the Preserver of Man" charges us to be strong, courageous, unafraid, and upbeat—with the knowledge that God is with us no matter what.

The Responsive Reading from Nehemiah shows why that counsel is possible: "Thou, even thou, art Lord alone; thou has made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas, and all that is therein, and thou preservest them all" (9:6). This text is like a foreword to the Lesson, and Isaiah illustrates Nehemiah's profession of faith, beginning with what God said, "My people shall know my name" (52:6). As I worked through the Lesson, the significance of those words blazed out in every section.
