Listen and yield to Love
For the Lesson titled "Love" from July 28 - August 3, 2014
This week’s Christian Science Bible Lesson, “Love,” leads us to understand the nature of divine Love and its unstoppable healing power. It shows us that no situation is beyond divine Love’s reach. It’s also encouraging that many of the passages from the Bible in this Lesson were written during times of trial.
Two passages in the first section declare God’s inseparability from man. Interestingly, many scholars believe both passages were written when the Jews had been conquered and exiled from their country and city of worship—Jerusalem. Isaiah, speaking for God, writes, “Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee” (Isaiah 43:4, citation 2). The passage from Genesis describes God as making man in God’s own image (see 1:27, cit. 3). Both passages affirm God’s love and closeness to mankind, despite outward circumstances.
