Bible Insights

Since 2003, our Bible Forum column has provided readers with valuable Bible scholarship and historical context. Now the column features shorter insights and ideas from contributors' individual Bible study. This approach will continue to shed new light on familiar (or not so familiar) Bible stories, history, and scholarship. But we also hope it will inspire more readers to dig deeper into their own study of the Bible and Christian Science--and to offer their insights and discoveries for publication.

The love of Christ

From the August 2011 issue of The Christian Science Journal

One day as I began my morning, I found myself embroiled in conflict, self-criticism, doubt, persecution, and anxiety. My head was filled with such garbage. I was in an internal battle brought on by human reasoning,  human opinion, and past mistakes. So, I turned to God for help. 

Why God? It sure seemed that help that morning was far away and that hope for rescue was small. But I have learned to turn to prayer in the most trying of times and lean on my heavenly Father-Mother God. I have seen that as I put my trust in God, completely, fully, I hear His response. God did quickly answer my sincere calling out to him, with a scripture from Romans I found in the Christian Science weekly Bible Lesson. Paul’s words spoke loudly and directly to me: “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?” (8:35).

As I read in the scripture what Paul had to say, his wisdom clearly struck a chord within me. I realized that the love of God was ever present. No hardship, misinformation, mistake, hatred, spite, envy, fear, or personal battles of any kind could separate me from the love of God and His infinite blessings.
