Hanukkak, Christmas, Fruit of the Spirit Peace

Today's focus is Peace.
Again I am using the King Jame's Version of the Bible unless noted along with citations from the Christian Science textbook Science and Health with Keys to the Scripture by Mary Baker Eddy.

Feel free to share your thoughts on Peace and the Prince of Peace as we love to hear from readers.

Section II

The Bible

Isaiah 54:13
13 And all thy children shall be taught of the Lord; and great shall be the peace of thy children.

II Thessilonians 3:6
Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.

I Corinthians 1:3
Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 14:33
33 For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

Isaiah 9:6,7
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

Isaiah 52:7
How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!

Section II
Science & Health

Glory be to God, and peace to the struggling hearts!

Christ hath rolled away the stone from the door of hu

18 man hope and faith, and through the reve

lation and demonstration of life in God, hath
elevated them to possible at-one-ment with the spiritual
21idea of man and his divine Principle, Love.

506: 8-14

Genesis i. 8. And God called the firmament Heaven.
9   And the evening and the morning were the second day.

Through divine Science, Spirit, God, unites under
standing to eternal harmony.

The calm and exalted
12 thought or spiritual apprehension is at peace.

Thus the dawn of ideas goes on, forming each
successive stage of progress.

Despised and rejected of men," was Isaiah's
graphic word concerning the coming Prince of Peace.

Herod and Pilate laid aside old feuds in order to unite
in putting to shame and death the best man that ever
trod the globe.

To-day, as of old, error and evil again
18make common cause against the exponents of truth.

The "man of sorrows" best understood the nothing
ness of material life and intelligence and the mighty ac

21  tuality
 of all-inclusive God, good.

These were the two cardinal points of Mind-healing, or
Christian Science, which armed him with Love. The high

24  est earthly representative of God, speaking of human
ability to reflect divine power, prophetically said to his
disciples, speaking not for their day only but for all time:
27"He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do
also;" and "These signs shall follow them that believe."


Fulfilling the
12different demands of their united spheres, their sympa
thies should blend in sweet confidence and cheer, each
partner sustaining the other, — thus hallowing the union
15of interests and affections, in which the heart finds peace
and home.

another note to readers: all citations from Science and Health are copied with formatting as they are seen in our weekly lesson and in the book.

I hope you have a blessed week as we continue our journey.

  1. Peace...I sure could use a little more of that this week.

    I'll have to take these passages and mediate on them over the next few days.
