How long does happiness last?  A few minutes?  An hour?  A day, a week, or a month?  In the Golden Text Isaiah tells us that we should rejoice forever in God’s creation.  Can we say that we regularly find reason for rejoicing?  Or is most of our time spent lamenting the dreary condition of the world and perhaps even our own lives?  People find all sorts of things to fret over. The environment, mortality, disease, social strife, and supply, to name a few—each of which will be addressed in this Lesson.  What we need is an attitude makeover.

The opening citation in the Responsive Reading is from Nehemiah. The verse is Ezra’s proclamation ascribing blessing, honor, and glory to God as the creator of all things. This is done as a precursor [or forerunner] to the reading of the Book of the Law.  It calls attention to God’s omnipotence and is meant to add emphasis to the authority, weight, and influence to what the people were about to hear.  It’s a good reminder to us too, as we start this Lesson, to remember that what we are about to read isn’t a human philosophy or tradition, but that it is the Word of God, and we are called to celebrate that indisputable fact with rejoicing.

The psalmist conveys this joy with a “new song” of praise.  This praise is shown in a variety of ways, through voice, dance, and instruments, but they all recognize that God is the maker of all things and that He is pleased with His work.  The psalmist calls upon all creation to praise God for all He does, and to acknowledge His greatness.

Now while it seems like rejoicing and praising God should be a natural thing for us, do we really rejoice in God and His creation?  Do we really acknowledge Him in all His ways and attribute all power to Him?  [Check out CedarS theme to “altar everything…”]  We regularly read these psalms and feel an occasional glint of happiness when things seem to be going smoothly for us, or when we see some unusually beautiful scenery that reminds us of the immensity of creation.  But rejoicing is more than a passive moment of pleasure.  Rejoicing is a feeling of great delight and active, constant awareness of the ever-presence of God.  It’s a vibrant attitude that sees God expressed everywhere, knowing that God is the source of all that is good and of all that really exists.  Rejoicing is consciously living in the kingdom of heaven.

Section 1: Behold the Wondrous Works of God
I was having lunch the other day with fellow clergy in my area and a Muslim friend said to me “when I look at the magnificence of creation, I cannot help but know that there must be God.”  As he spoke, I couldn’t help but think of the opening citation of the Lesson (B1).  In context, Job was being reminded to quit disputing with God and recognize His supremacy. Then the author has God putting him in his place [according to most Bible scholars].  “Where were you when I created the earth?” (B2).  [Cobbey Crisler’s view is that this question is NOT rhetorical, but one that we are to answer based on our Genesis 1 dominion-man identity as noted in P.S. #1.]  This same question might well be asked of anyone who thinks they know how the universe came to be.  The fact is, nobody physically was there so they don’t really know.  Of course, the Abrahamic religions accept the creation story in Genesis 1, but as Christian Scientists, we read it spiritually.  The intent of the story is to underscore God’s creative power, and to acknowledge that all reality exists at God’s behest, not as a process of evolution, and that everything He made was and is good (B3).  The psalmist again uses strong language.  God’s works aren’t just “OK” they are GREAT, stupendous, splendid, wonderful, awesome, and profound (B4).  Theologian John Calvin recognized that God’s government and creative power is beyond human reckoning, and if “things were under our own management, we would entirely invert the order which God observes.”  The fifth citation continues to enumerate the comprehensive nature of God’s work, and emphatically declares that all of creation rejoices in God’s wondrous work with shouting and singing (B5).

On the whole, people are much more likely to complain about the state of things than to rejoice over them.  When you think about it, how could anyone possibly complain or fret over anything if he knew that God was the creator and author of all things?  The key to genuine rejoicing is to look at things not through the senses; it starts with acknowledging God as All good.  “God, Spirit, alone created all, and called it good” (S1).  There’s no hint of evil or deterioration, or pollution, disease, famine, war, or fragility there.  As the psalmist says all creation should rejoice in God, our Leader says, “Everything in God’s universe expresses Him” (S2).  The subheading of the paragraph that follows is “The universal cause.”  It explains God’s all-inclusive nature, and the impossibility of any other self-existence. God didn’t create matter, but created everything through Mind, and God’s creation isn’t fragile and vulnerable, always hanging in the balance depending on mankind’s behavior, but is perfect, and eternal (S3).  That’s a very salient point.  So much concern about our world is due to fear that mankind has the potential to destroy his environment, but when we realize that God’s creation is invulnerable and perfect, such fears lose their footing.

Matter didn’t create itself, nor does it govern itself.  Matter isn’t the reality of creation.  God creates reality and His creation is His idea.  He thinks it, and it’s done (S4).  That means nothing can destroy it or threaten it.  Mortal belief attempts to claim that everything is material, governed by material laws, and subject to catastrophic failure at any point.  Mortal mind is, quite simply, incapable of creating anything.  Nothing exists “beyond the range of all-inclusive infinity.”  We can stop fretting, and rest solidly on the fact that everything made is God’s work—and it’s good (S5).  That realization doesn’t mean that we carelessly disregard our environment—on the contrary, if we actually acknowledge that everything made is idea and has its permanence in God, we should be ecstatically joyful and care for our environment as if it were the most precious gift we could have.  If we cherish a gift, we will take care of it.  Let’s rejoice in that gift.

Section 2: Newness of Life
We can see how the recognition of God as the Creator of all reality infers the perpetuity of nature and the environment.  But, what about man?  Is he as fixed in creation as his surroundings are?  A lot of people would say that life is a transient thing.  Compared to the mountains, rivers, and forests, man’s time seems quite brief.  Age and decline seem to be an unavoidable aspect of human existence.  Some find this rather sobering.  But we need not despair.  God gives us—nay is—our Life.  The prophet tells us that God knows His creation.  There’s really never a need to be depressed about the belief of aging.  God’s creation is constantly new and so are we.  God never wears out, or runs out of ideas; and as His reflection we too, have infinite opportunities for fresh views and renewed hope each day (B6).  How can we be less than joyful about that?  Someone once told me that, “age was the accumulation of unsolved problems.”  The newness of life that comes from understanding God eliminates all memory, or record of anything untoward.  “The former things shall not be remembered, nor come into mind” (B7).  Keeping fresh and not allowing disappointments, grievances, and resentments to build up, keeps us upbeat and puts a bounce in our step.

God’s glory isn’t limited to a finite number of years.  It endures forever (B8).  Man is created to glorify God and God rejoices in us too.  We never want to get bogged down by the spirit of heaviness.  We want to be buoyant with hope and vivacity (B9).  We need to consciously acknowledge the wonder of our relationship with God and embrace the joy of being His reflection.  The psalmist blesses (praises) God with his whole being (B10).

Our textbook tells us that “Truth makes a new creature, in whom old things pass away and ‘all things are become new’” (S6).  There’s no holding on to a false material history to drag us down.  Mrs. Eddy tells us directly to “Never record ages” (S7).  This is important because if we accept a material timeline we inadvertently accept all the general beliefs and limitations that come with it.  Our Leader tells us to “shape our views of existence into loveliness, freshness, and continuity, rather than into age and blight.”  That’s really what this Lesson is about—re-shaping our views.  The spiritual view replaces darkness and gloom with “supernal freshness and fairness” (S8).  We aren’t subject to the false power of material law.  We’re subject only to divine power.  We’re urged to let the “divine energy” bring us “into newness of life” (S9).  Doesn’t that sound like a great place to be?  If we accept this higher view it will surely bring us into “newness of life” (S10).  I find that really exciting.

Section 3: Healing and renewal
Another aspect of human experience that gives rise to a gloomy outlook is the expectation that disease is inevitable, and once you get it, your fate is sealed.  If that were true, we’d have good reason to get down.  But thankfully God does great things, and we can rejoice (B12).  There’s nothing God can’t do.  There’s never a moment when we are beyond His loving care. God is “mighty” (B13).  Not only that, He rejoices in us with singing!  Can you imagine that?  We think of ourselves singing praises to God, but here the prophet tells us God sings in joy over us!  What a lovely image.  Jesus was aware of that joy, and it filled him with the Holy Spirit (B14).

This week we have the story of Jesus healing a woman who was bowed down so badly that she couldn’t lift herself up (B15).  Aside from the burden of whatever ailment she was facing, it’s not hard to imagine how she must have felt.  She was probably self-conscious about her appearance and may have thought that she would never stand upright again.  She’d been suffering for eighteen years.  After healing her, Jesus was reprimanded for healing on the Sabbath.  No doubt this woman, when hearing the objections, felt another surge of shame and perhaps even questioned if she deserved to be healed at all.  Jesus didn’t allow the critical arrogance of old theology to bring either of them down.  He defended her right to be free as a daughter of Abraham.  [See P.S. #2 for Cobbey Crisler’s insights on this woman who Jesus healed of spinal difficulty despite the indignation of the ruler of the synagogue. (B15)]

It’s not that unusual for resistance to raise its head when we’ve made spiritual progress or taken a stand against material law.  Jealousy and envy try to bring us down, but we can claim our true heritage and remain strong and proud.

Jesus never let the religious establishment, or material law drag him down.  He boldly faced every opposition to man’s glorious freedom (S12).  Can you ever imagine Jesus taking a pessimistic view of anything?  He knew that we never have to go along with error of any kind.  He had divine law on his side, and he knew that is the only side there is.  Truth destroys error (S13).  Medical belief and religious resistance don’t control things.  God does (S14).  The religious establishment of Jesus’ time felt that illness was God’s way of punishing sin.  They were quick to justify disease and every evil.  But our loving Master had a higher view.  He reversed that notion with the knowledge that God never sends sickness, but destroys them (S15).  It is impossible and illogical to think that omnipotent good can either create or condone evil of any sort (S16).

The Pharisees, like the medical world today, and in some ways the traditional religious world too, are stuck in thinking there’s nothing we can do about disease.  It’s just a fact of life that we have to deal with.  To think there is no hope can be depressing—so much so that some people would rather give up and take their own lives instead of fighting for their freedom.  Praise God that we can always fight for our freedom and that God has made us perfect, never allowing us to be vulnerable to sin or disease.  Jesus taught us to actively demonstrate the power of divine Love that casts out all error (S17).  That’s the outlook we want—joyous expectation and strength in the healing power of our creator.

Section 4: Renewal of Supply
It seems like the topic of each section of this Lesson is taken right out of the news.  Trouble in the environment, troubles associated with aging, fitness, and beauty, health issues, and in this section, economics.  Daily we’re inundated with dismal pictures of a troubled world.  But if we understand God as the only cause, and creator, we can rejoice knowing that God’s law is always at hand to meet our need.

The scriptures tell us our God loves us “with an everlasting love” (B16).  How could we let economic indicators taint our peace or happiness when God loves us so much?  The prophets didn’t depend on soil and weather conditions to dictate our prosperity.  They knew that God was the cause of all growth and supply (B17).  The psalmist reminds us again to sing a new song in acknowledgment of God’s infinite creative power (B18).  With God, we never have to be concerned that our resources will diminish.  God is represented as actively seeking us and leading us to not merely sufficient, but to abundant sustenance (B19).

Jesus looked to God not only for health, but for provision as well.  We all know the story of the feeding of the five thousand.  Let’s consider a few key points as we imagine ourselves in the same situation.  The disciples’ first impulse was to send the multitude away, but Jesus wanted to feed them.  If you were facing a great, or even a less imposing need, what would your first impulse be?  Would you be motivated like the disciples by thinking about your own needs before others?  After Jesus tells the disciples to feed the crowd, they immediately protest citing their sparse resources.  Do you always take the “glass half empty” approach?  Do you find a reason not to do the loving thing?  Jesus wasn’t impressed with the minimal supply on hand.  He gave thanks for what he had and started sharing it.  Would you be as confident that Love would supply everyone’s need, unafraid of running out either for others or for yourself?  When the people were done eating Jesus told the disciples to gather the leftovers, not wanting to allow anything to go to waste.  After the crowd was fed, would you bother to gather leftovers?  Or might you not bother with them, assuming that since you had enough this time, the same thing would happen in the future? [See P.S. #3: Cobbey Crisler commentary’s on Jesus feeding 5,000 men (B20).]

Jesus knew that God sustains man (S18).  He looked to the father to supply every single need.  Jesus didn’t hoard what he had.  He knew that God supplied everyone equally and was more than willing to share without fear (S19).  If we look at things from a biological perspective we might think that resources and potential food depends on seeds and breeding.  But even here, Christian Science rises above the human view to the understanding that God is the only source.  Plants are governed by God because they are ideas of God.  They represent sustenance and inexhaustible love.  Plants, trees, flowers, crops are all governed by God alone, not as matter but as spiritual idea (S21-23).  Divine Love meets every human need (S24).  Therefore, we never need to despair over the state of the world’s food supply, or for that matter, the supply of anything we need.  No fretting—just rejoicing and following Jesus’ example of praising God for the slightest bit we have.  Gratitude opens our heart and eyes to see the unlimited potential of God’s magnificent Love.  {“Gratitude outlaws blindness to present good.” Miss Mary Kessler]

Section 5: More correct views reveal hidden glories
One of the reasons people fret over the human condition, in both personal and general terms, is that limited mortal views are compounded by the fact that we don’t know what the future holds.  Everything is uncertain.  Pundits spend much more time warning us about how bad things are in the world than in telling us to relax because everything is looking good.  It’s in our nature to want to know things so we either have expectations for good, or for evil, and we try to prepare ourselves one way or another.  Keeping a joyful attitude when we can’t really see what’s around the corner can seem a bit daunting for some.  It may even seem more difficult in the face of racial tensions and judicial inequity currently going on in the U.S.

In the wake of current events many are puzzled, dismayed, and frustrated and feel drawn to band together to protest injustice.  This situation deserves deep prayer and much more attention than we have time to give it here, but recognizing God as the Creator of all, and that all God’s ideas are good, worthy, valiant, honest, trustworthy, innocent, safe, secure, and immortal would help to lift us above the human picture in order to see clearly what God is doing.  A spiritual viewpoint always brings healing.  We may protest injustice and point out sin as needed, but, as Christian Scientists, we can’t stop there.  Healing prayer looks beyond the human circumstance to spiritual reality.  This isn’t neglecting or overlooking legitimate needs, but reaching out whole-heartedly for a permanent solution based on the law of God that overrules all inadequate human statutes.

The Scriptures are consistent on the message of being joyful all the time, and regularly singing praises to God for all His goodness (B21, B22).  We’ve established that gratitude opens the window of our thought and gets us in the frame of mind to recognize good when it comes along; and to look for it if it’s not immediately visible.  A huge benefit of having a spiritual outlook that practices rejoicing regularly is that this spiritual insight promises to reveal things to us that aren’t readily seen by those who are more materially-minded (B23). St. John’s vision of the apocalypse is perhaps the quintessential model for spiritual seeing. He was still on earth, but saw things that others couldn’t.  His vision included confirmation that God is truly omnipotent and that evil is doomed to destruction (B24).  He calls upon everyone to rejoice over this apprehension.

Christian Science relies on the veracity of St. John’s vision.  It takes every scriptural and prophetic hymn of praise as a direct order to follow if we wish to realize the allness of God’s power.  In Christian Science we’re not subject to the variable trends of the financial markets, environmental conditions, health laws, social injustice, or anything that is seen through the material senses.  We give all glory to God, recognizing that God alone created all things (S25, S26).

 The only way to see this is to look beyond the sense evidence to the reality of things (S27). At CedarS Camps we learn that guiding a horse is more than just pulling the reigns in the right direction.  The wranglers tell us that the horses can sense even if we are looking in a different direction, and they will tend to go in the direction we’re looking.  Mrs. Eddy tells us, “We must look where we would walk…” then she tells us, “…we must act as possessing all power from Him in whom we have our being.”  That means taking the right attitude right now, even before it is manifested.  That attitude of joy and expectancy leads us to achieve what we’re looking for.  As our views of God and His creation improve, we will see things that we couldn’t before.  With that ability, we would never need to be cynical, or worried, or to take a pessimistic view.  The only consciousness we’d have would be an abiding awareness of God’s ever-present goodness.

This is more than positive thinking—just hoping everything will turn out all right.  This is embracing the spiritual authority of God’s law and letting go of everything that opposes it.  There is nothing else like Christian Science in this regard.  It’s acknowledging and seeing God’s creation as it is—beholding “all the glories of earth and heaven and man,” and that is definitely ample reason for continual rejoicing.

[P.S. #1 Cobbey Crisler’s view on God’s questions to us in Job 38 (“Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? When the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy?”) These are “NOT rhetorical questions, but ones that we are expected to answer.  What could this (“Laying the foundations of the earth”) mean to the Jewish reader but Genesis 1? (B3)  The dominion man IS there… “I and my Father are one.”… The whole question of origin is what God brings out…  We must answer every question posed by God in these chapters to get the same (turn-around) results that Job did…  If God comes to each one of us and asks us this, how long are we going to put off our answer?  It took 40 years for Israel to make it to their Promised Land walking straight it would have taken 6 months.  How many years in our lives are we going to spend wandering rather than adopting straight routes to answer God’s demands?”  Notes on a Cobbey Crisler talk about Job in Warren’s Oxford Wide-Margin Edition of the King James Bible, Job 38: 3, 4)] 

[P.S. #2 (as on 11-2-14) Cobbey Crisler insights on (B15, Luke 13:11-17):
“A woman with spinal difficulty is in a synagogue.
  Notice that Luke doesn’t say she has an infirmity.  Luke, who is reputed to have been a physician, doesn’t even diagnose it as an infirmity but as a ‘spirit of infirmity,’ a sense of infirmity, a concept, a spirit, a thought. ‘She was bowed together. She couldn’t lift up herself.’
Verse 12. Jesus comes and announces to womanhood something that could be applicable in many ways, not just this one time.  ‘Woman, you are free from thine infirmity.’ Verse 13. ‘She’s made straight and glorifies God.’
Verse 14.  Incredible, ‘the ruler of the synagogue’ in which this grand healing and correction in thought occurred ‘answered with indignation’.
Jesus’ explanation about the cause of disease is Verse 16. No longer should there be any room in Christian thought that disease stems from God or is God’s will when Jesus attributes it directly to anything that would oppose God.  Only what would oppose God could impose something on man that God Himself never created in His whole man.  Is this a new theology?  Satan and disease linked, and not God as the cause of loss, or pain, or sickness?
Because if it is, Jesus defines Satan as a liar in John (8:44).  Satan has bound this woman with an infirmity that has her bent over, and has accomplished this for 18 years (Luke 13:16). And Satan is ‘a liar and the father of it.’ Satan’s works must be lies as well.  If they are, they can be corrected mentally, by a full recognition of what is true.  Notice that Satan does the binding.  Jesus said (John 8:32), ‘Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.’
It’s a contest between the truth and the lie about God and His theology, about man, about woman, about children and about disease.  If Satan is a liar, he will never change his character. Our idea of God may have gone haywire, but God has never moved.” The Gospels, Volume Three, Luke the Researcher, B. Cobbey Crisler, p. 176]

[P.S. #3: Cobbey Crisler commentary’s on Jesus feeding 5,000 men (B20, Matt. 14-14-21):
Matthew 14: “(Verse 13, before the verses in the lesson).  Jesus hearing that John the Baptist had been beheaded, decides to make himself scarce, leaves into a desert place apart.
(Verse 14). “But the multitudes followed him.”  Instead of saying, “Look, will you let a man be alone for once,” he turned around with compassion and healed their sick.” 
Verse 15-20).  And out comes the famous loaves-and-fishes incidentin which everyone is fed, with a balance left over despite the fact that we’re dealing with thousands of people. Only the gospel of John (6:9) says it came out of a little boy’s lunch box. 
He [the boy] apparently was the only one who thought that he might be interested enough in Jesus to stay beyond his supper time.  But it was out of the thought of that young boy that Jesus was able to build a defeat of limitation for everyone who was there.
(Verse 21).  Remember if you call it “the feeding of the five thousand,” that you are forgetting that they had forgotten, themselves, the women or the children under 20 years of age.  So, if there were five thousand men there over 20 years of age, you can imagine how big “the miracle” really was.  There were thousands more.”
[And, right after this “(Verses 24-33) We have the walking-on-the-sea incident.”]
