Shining a light on the weekly Bible Lessons published in the Christian Science Quarterly® 

Reality

Many, O Lord my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.

Reckoning or numbering was familiar to the Hebrew people—head counts verified tribe membership and growth of the overall population (see the book of Numbers, as well as examples in Joshua 8:10 ; I Samuel 11:8 ). By contrast, God’s works are proclaimed to be countless. And His saving power, earlier acknowledged for the individual Psalmist (see Psalms 40:1–3 ), is celebrated here as universal and infinite.

The Bible Lessons serve as weekly study guides as well as the sermon in every Christian Science Sunday church service. Learn more at BibleLesson.com
