"How I study the Bible Lesson—and put it into practice"

From the December 1997 issue of The Christian Science Journal

This feature gives readers an opportunity to share with one another helpful approaches to their study of the Bible Lessons published in the Christian Science Quarterly, and how they put what they learn into practice in their lives. These Bible Lessons consist of references from the Bible and from Science and Health.

Before I started studying the Bible Lesson, I was looking for a program of Bible-based religious instruction that would feed my hunger for a knowledge of God, show me how to follow Christ Jesus' teachings and example, and keep my life spiritually focused every day of the week. How grateful I am that the Christian Science Sunday School introduced me to the Bible Lessons in the Christian Science Quarterly and, through the use of questions and answers, showed me how to explore the ideas in them.

This approach to studying continues to help me. As I read the citations from the Bible and Science and Health, I ask myself questions such as What does this passage teach me about God? What am I learning about man in God's image? What instruction is there for daily living? What does this Lesson tell me about how to heal? How do the Golden Text and Responsive Reading relate to the Lesson subject? How does the idea contained in a particular citation aid me in healing myself and others?
