Spirit animates your life

For the lesson titled "Spirit" from January 30-February 5, 2012

This week’s Bible Lesson, titled “Spirit,” draws on the inspiring examples of five people who depended on the power of Spirit, God, to fulfill their God-given mission and bless others. Jesus, Samuel, David, and Paul are cited from the Bible, while the 19th-century example of Florence Nightingale is cited from Science and Health. The lives of each of them, Jesus Christ being preeminent as the Messiah, attest to the truth behind the Golden Text’s declaration that, “I am the Lord All-Powerful. So don’t depend on your own power or strength, but on my Spirit” (Contemporary English Version, Zechariah 4:6). 

This Lesson makes the important distinction that only the Spirit of God, good, has reality, power, and influence, while evil doesn’t. Science and Health teaches that “there are evil beliefs, often called evil spirits; but these evils are not Spirit, for there is no evil in Spirit” (Mary Baker Eddy, p. 206, cit. 18).
