Watching for Christ's appearing

For the Lesson titled "Christ Jesus" from December 17 - 23, 2012

As we prepare for upcoming Christmas celebrations, let’s not get so busy that we forget to be spiritually receptive to the messenger bringing the good news at the heart of Christmas. In the first verse of the Responsive Reading of this week’s Bible Lesson, titled  “Christ Jesus,” Isaiah, like a good watchman, joyously declares, “How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!” (52:7).

In her textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy asks the thought-provoking question, “Is the wise man of to-day believed, when he beholds the light which heralds Christ’s eternal dawn and describes its effulgence?” (p. 95, citation 2).
