Join us for the best summer yet!

Ken Cooper’s “POETIC POSTLUDE” shares poetry inspired by Bible citations that celebrate THE PERFECT SUBSTANCE OF MAN in this week’s Christian Science Quarterly Bible Lesson on:

“SUBSTANCE”
For Sunday, September 10 th, 2023


The perfect substance of man is the consequence of God being All-in-all. It is impossible for man to be outside the substance and continuance of All-good. As God, Spirit, is not matter, so man cannot be, never was, and is not, material; he is the substance and purity of Spirit, and therefore as perfect as the Father-Mother God of All.

GOLDEN TEXT

Romans 11:33   Who can ever measure the fantastic wealth and deep wisdom of God? Who can understand and explain what He decides and does, He who knows everything?! (…What God doesn’t know doesn’t exist!)

Extra:  Romans 11:36        For all things, without exception, originate with Him and come from Him; all things, without exception, live through Him, and all things begin, live and end in Him. To Him be glory forever! Amen!  (…All is infinite substance and its infinite manifestation.)

RESPONSIVE READING.

1 Chronicles 29:11    All that is great, powerful, glorious, victorious and majestic, is Yours, O God. Everything belongs to You. It is Your eternal kingdom . And You are its Supreme Ruler!

1 Chronicles 29:12    Riches and honor come from you. You rule everything. In your hand are power and strength. It is in your power to make great and give strength to all.

As we live in the kingdom of heaven, the provision of All-good is universal. Access to wisdom, guidance in everything we do, the unfettered delivery of all we need at the perfect time, is all ours. The “imperishable things of Spirit” (S Cit.18 21:9) are always to hand, while the obstructions of material sense fall away into their empty dreams and disappear. Divine substance constantly meets every human need, and we just need to reach out to receive its love.

As stated last week, the glory of God is infinite. Substance is God’s glory expressed. It can be no less than perfect, and is everywhere. We are never separate from its beauty and light. Beholding the substance of Spirit in all we see, we are the proof of its perfection.
