Life preserved

For the Lesson titled "Life" from July 14 - 20, 2014

God, Spirit, is Life; therefore, nothing can have existence outside God’s infinite creation. This is our dwelling place, wherein every aspect of being is preserved and abundantly blessed. Is this statement simply a “feel-good” platitude or genuine truth? In this week’s Bible Lesson, “Life,” the Apostle Paul proves the daily practicality of this truth. 

First, he assures the Athenians that the creator of all is not a localized god dwelling in temples, but rather a universal God giving us “life, and breath, and all things” (see Acts 17:24, 25, citation 2). And then he shows us this when he restores Eutychus to life (see Acts 20:7–12, cit. 5). Is such restoration possible? If man is the reflection of Life, God, then man’s life must be “indestructible and eternal” (Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 402, cit. 9).
