The lesson for this week is on the Subject of Sacrament. What is this sacrament, how do we partake of it? Our leader and the founder of Christian Science Mary Baker Eddy makes clear that to partake of the sacrament we must follow Christ’s teachings and heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, and cast out demons. She writes:
It is the living Christ, the practical Truth, which makes Jesus “the resurrection and the life” to all who follow him in deed. Obeying his precious precepts, — following his demonstration so far as we apprehend it, — we drink of his cup, partake of his bread, are baptized with his purity; and at last we shall rest, sit down with him, in a full understanding of the divine Principle which triumphs over death.
SH 31:14-22 (to .)
