The subject of this week’s Christian Science Bible Lesson is Sacrament.
Merriam-Webster defines Sacrament as:
a : a Christian rite (such as baptism or the Eucharist) that is believed to have been ordained by Christ and that is held to be a means of divine grace or to be a sign or symbol of a spiritual reality
In Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy writes:
Our Eucharist is spiritual communion with the one God. Our bread, “which cometh down from heaven,” is Truth. Our cup is the cross. Our wine the inspiration of Love, the draught our Master drank and commended to his followers.
In the Responsive Reading in this week’s Bible Lesson these lines from Psalm 95 invite us to:
1 O come, let us sing unto the Lord: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.
2 Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.
6 O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the Lord our maker.
These thoughts are a lovely way to begin a communion with God.
