Life is living you
For the lesson titled "Life" from January 9-15, 2012
In this week’s Bible Lesson, titled “Life,” we see that Life truly is God, and we are the effect, the activity, the expression of Life’s ever-present divine consciousness. Science and Health, by Mary Baker Eddy, informs us that “Life is Mind, the creator reflected in His creations” (p. 331 , citation 1). Therefore, it becomes clear that Life is living us. Life is the prime actor, and we are the activity, the evidence of Life’s perfect action. “Life demonstrates Life,” says Science and Health (p. 306 , cit. 27.)
We begin to realize our God-given dominion as we consistently turn to Him in every need, and accept His divine guidance. Then thoughts, motives, and actions become purified, spiritual progress becomes evident, and we grow in grace. Grace, charis, is defined in the “Dictionary of the Greek Testament” as “the divine influence upon the heart, and its reflection in the life” (Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible, p. 77).
