Protected at gunpoint

Originally appeared on

One morning a number of years ago, I had a strong impulse to get an early start on the day, so I sat down to read the Christian Science Bible Lesson before going to work. The subject for the week was “Love.”

One citation, the assertion in First John that “God is love” (4:8), particularly stood out to me and caught my attention. It’s a simple concept, but I felt its meaning as I began to think about how God unconditionally loves and cares for each of us. By the time I finished, I felt a strong, firm, peaceful sense of God’s presence with me.

We'd love to hear from you!
