I Chronicles 16:11-14
11 Seek the Lord and his strength,
seek his face continually.

ones.
14 He is the Lord our God; his
judgments are in all the earth.

Forever present, bounteous, free, 
Christ comes in gloom; 
And aye, with grace towards you and me, 
For health makes room. 

Give us this day our daily bread.

(Self-completeness)
When we realize that Life is Spirit, never in nor of matter, this
understanding will expand into self-completeness, finding all in
God, good, and needing no other consciousness.

265:10 Chapter 9: Creation

(Godward gravitation)
This scientific sense of being, forsaking matter for Spirit, by
no means suggests man's absorption into Deity and the loss of his
identity, but confers upon man enlarged individuality, a wider
sphere of thought and action, a more expansive love, a higher and
more permanent peace.


178:32 Chapter 7: Physiology

 

Chapter 7: Physiology
The rights of woman acknowledged
morally, civilly, and socially.

Yet wherefore signalize the birth 
Of him ne'er born? 
What can rehearse the glorious worth 
Of his high morn? 

Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

(Animal magnetism destroyed)
Whoever reaches the understanding of Christian Science in its
proper signification will perform the sudden cures of which it is
capable; but this can be done only by taking up the cross and
following Christ in the daily life.


232:16-19,32 Chapter 8: Footsteps of Truth

 

Chapter 8: Footsteps of Truth

Christ was not crucified - that doom 
Was Jesus' part; 
For Sharon's rose must bud and bloom 
In human heart. * 
*God was manifest in the Flesh- St.Paul

Enable us to know, -as in heaven, so on earth,- God is omnipotent, supreme.

(Denials of divine power)
In our age Christianity is again demonstrating the power of
divine Principle, as it did over nineteen hundred years ago, by
healing the sick and triumphing over death.
(Profession and proof)
There is neither place nor opportunity in Science for error of
any sort. Every day makes its demands upon us for higher proofs
rather than professions of Christian power. These proofs consist
solely in the destruction of sin, sickness, and death by the power
of Spirit, as Jesus destroyed them. This is an element of
progress, and progress is the law of God, whose law demands of us
only what we can certainly fulfil.
