THIS WEEK’S SUBJECT
God Rests in Action
THE BIBLE (KJV)
28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
Psalm 37:7 to :
7 Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him:
SCIENCE AND HEALTH
Mind produces all action.
God rests in action. Imparting has not impoverished, can never impoverish, the divine Mind. No exhaustion follows the action of this Mind, according to the apprehension of divine Science. The highest and sweetest rest, even from a human standpoint, is in holy work.
When we reach our limits of mental endurance, we conclude that intellectual labor has been carried sufficiently far; but when we realize that immortal Mind is ever active, and that spiritual energies can neither wear out nor can so-called material law trespass upon God-given powers and resources, we are able to rest in Truth, refreshed by the assurances of immortality, opposed to mortality.
CHRISTIAN SCIENCE HYMNAL
Hymn 43, Verse 1 (Jonathan Evans)
Come unto me, ye weary, And I will give you rest.
O tender words of Jesus, Which come to hearts oppressed.
They tell of benediction, Of pardon, grace, and peace,
Of joy that hath no ending, Of love which cannot cease.
