Life – July 13-19, 2015

prepared by Merrill Boudreaux, CS

P.S.S.T. Golden Text – How do you embrace life each day? What qualities of Life do you plan to take hold of each day?

P.S.S.T. Responsive Reading – How did God help Moses and the children of Israel in the story in the Responsive Reading? Is there a hint as to the power of God? Can this power be applied to our world where today some appear to be in drought some appear to be in flood, some need water to drink when the sea water is too salty?

Read together verses 7, 8, & 9 in Psalm 36 – found at the close of the RR. What key words are found in this passage? (excellent lovingkindness, trust, under the shadow of thy wings, abundantly satisfied, fatness, river of thy pleasure, fountain of life) To whom do these key words belong?

P.S.S.T. Section 1 – What is the key phrase in citation B2? (Fear not) What are the promises given in citation B2? Can you count on those promises today? Why?

What is the promise given in citation B3? Can you ever be less than strong? Ask students to share any experiences they had when they called upon God for strength. This need not be physical strength only. Courage is an example of strength as well. So is standing up for right or Principle. Does this strength come because we plead for it or is it always there and pouring forth? S3.

What is another aspect of our understanding of God as Life in citation S4? (length, strength, deathless, immortality)

P.S.S.T. Section 2 – Here is a different aspect of thirst, not just for water. Perhaps a synonym for thirst in citation B4 is desire. What is the result when we trust our desires to God? See also Science & Health 1:11. What are the benefits stated in citation B6 when one looks to Life for aid?

Ask students to memorize citation B7, line 28.

What other kept promises from Life are stated in citation S8? Ask students to memorize the first line in S&H found in citation S10.

P.S.S.T. Section 3 – Read together the Bible story in citation B8. How was willingness and receptivity demonstrated in the story? What was the outcome?

Read together also citation S15. Who is this “little child”? You, all others, all ideas. Is becoming as a little child exclusive to Christian Scientists? Who are promised to be blessed in citation S15?

P.S.S.T. Section 4 – What do you suppose was the gospel or good news preached by Jesus mentioned in citation B10?

In citation B11, how important were these wells discovered or dug by Jacob, especially in a desert land? Jesus has this conversation with the woman about water. This is a good role play story.

What do you suppose Jesus meant about the water he would give? What are the qualities of that sustaining water? (cleansing, thirst quenching, refreshing, filling and restoring/renewing one’s whole being)

Why? See the answer in citation S19. Are you ready for this universal truth and its application?

P.S.S.T. Section 5 – Can life ever result in death? How did Jesus demonstrate Life eternal in citation B13? What is God’s will, life or death? These are opposites and only one can be true. How was God’s love for that which She created stated in citation B16?

Read together citation S22. What are the grand facts stated therein?

Read together from S&H 495:14 (partially in S26). Here is a great truth and worthy of memorization.

P.S.S.T. Section 6 – What do you suppose is meant by understanding? Can you relate to it as something useful, provable? What is the result of understanding life as spiritual as stated in citation S27?

What are the key questions to be asked in citation S30? What will be the answers/results?

Will you take of this water of Life/Truth? It is freely given to all.
