Blessings from the creator

For the Lesson titled “God the Only Cause and Creator” from June 2 - 8, 2014

This week’s Christian Science Bible Lesson, “God the Only Cause and Creator,” establishes facts about who we are as part of God’s glorious creation and how those facts ensure blessings for us.

Did you know that God rejoices in us? When we read in Psalms that “the Lord shall rejoice in his works” (104:31, citation 3), we can and should include ourselves in God’s rejoicing! Now, some may read that statement and think: “That doesn’t apply to me. Why would God rejoice in me?” Very simply, because God is divine Principle, Love, and He alone created us. As the work of His hands, man reflects the glory and goodness of his Maker. Identifying God as divine Principle, as Mary Baker Eddy does in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, reminds us that there is no variableness in God, so He is always rejoicing in us (see p. 331, cit. 1).

One of the qualities we possess as God’s creation is beauty. Science and Health tells us, “Beauty is a thing of life …” (p. 247, cit. 8), and we most certainly reflect God as Life, and thus express beauty as an aspect of God’s reflection.
