Knowing the Lord brings blessings

For the Lesson titled "God" from December 31, 2012 - January 6, 2013

There are many theories in today’s society about our relationship with God. Some think any relationship with God should be seen as simply a form of emotional or psychological comfort, another way to bring calm to one’s mind, or merely something to get us through our lives. But this week’s Bible Lesson, titled “God,” shows that our relationship with Him is not a theoretical crutch to lean on; it is a practical source of strength that brings us real blessings here and now.

In Section I, we are instructed to get better acquainted with God. In Deuteronomy, it says, “Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the Lord he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else” (4:39, citation 2). Just as in our human relationships, our relationship with God is strengthened by knowing Him better. Mary Baker Eddy tells us how we go about doing this: “Not materially but spiritually we know Him as divine Mind, as Life, Truth, and Love” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 140, cit. 4).
