Unreality – March 30 – April 5, 2015

prepared by Merrill Boudreaux, CS,

P.S.S.T. Golden Text – What hour is it that has come? Is this your hour to be glorified? What does it mean to be lifted up from matter, from the belief of a physical life? When that happens and you recognize yourself as a spiritual being, do you also lift up all mankind in this same depict? If this is indeed your hour, what will you do with it?

P.S.S.T. Responsive Reading – In this hour how will you be a witness for God, Good? What strengths are available to you as stated in the Responsive Reading?

  • Lay aside sin
  • Run with patience
  • Lift up your hands, arms, and any feeble muscles
  • Be strong
  • Peace and holiness to all men
  • Hear the word that is so powerful it shakes earth and heaven
  • Receive the kingdom
  • Have grace
  • Serve God

P.S.S.T. Section 1 – In this hour what else are you called on to witness in this section?

  • Fear not
  • Be not dismayed
  • God strengthens you
  • God helps you
  • God upholds you
  • You have a threshing machine and fan to separate fable from fact, sin from truth, death from Life (S4, S5)

Does the spirit that rested on the rod that came out of Jesse also rest on you? What will that spirit do for you in this hour? By extension, what will it do for all mankind? (B2)

P.S.S.T. Section 2 – In this hour past experiences disappear. S9. What goals will you look toward? (S10) What assurance do you have that goals will be met? What will you prove? God with us. (S11)

P.S.S.T. Section 3 – In this hour what does Jesus tell us about letting go of trouble? Read together citation B6. Why did Jesus come into the world? He would have preferred a certain hour to pass over him. But, he knew it must come to provide a way forward for us. What is this way as identified in citation S14?

P.S.S.T. Section 4 – Look up the definition of Gethsemane in the Glossary of Science and Health 586:23 or in citation S18. What was Jesus’ response in this hour to the human struggle? (S19) This is a Christian Science prayer treatment. What are you willing to give up or to let go in order to receive God’s will in your life? Perhaps students can have some quiet reflection time then record for their eyes only on a notecard a commitment they are making about what to give up, especially an uncharacteristic desire. This reflection time is like having the fan in hand to separate a false belief or suggestion from that which God knows about them. Sweep on!

P.S.S.T. Section 5 – In the hour when Jesus was accused what was his “Gethsemane” response? citation B9 verse 34: “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.” In this hour who do you need to forgive? Perhaps even yourself. Why did Jesus accept the result in that hour of accusation and crucifixion? See citation S23 lines 25-4.

P.S.S.T. Section 6 – We shall not stay with the cross and the tomb but in this hour shall see the resurrection. Why did the women go to the tomb? What were they seeking, what did they find? (B10) What did Jesus’ resurrection prove? [S25 lines 31-2 & hear Daily Lift link at the end] Jesus did his work for himself and for who else? (S28) In this hour will you seek the healing elements of pure Christianity? What will be the result? (S28 “universal goodness” where no one is left out) Will you accept Jesus’ request to his disciples in Matthew 26:38, 40? In this hour pray the 6th Tenet in S&H 497:24.
