I John 4:7,8,16
7 Beloved, let us love one another:
for love is of God; and every one
that loveth is born of God, and
knoweth God.
8 He that loveth not knoweth not
God; for God is love.
16 And we have known and believed
the love that God hath to us. God is
love; and he that dwelleth in love
dwelleth in God, and God in him.

***
Ephesians 2:19-22
19 Now therefore ye are no more
strangers and foreigners, but
fellowcitizens with the saints, and
of the household of God;
20 And are built upon the
foundation of the apostles and
prophets, Jesus Christ himself being
the chief corner stone;
21 In whom all the building fitly
framed together groweth unto an holy
temple in the Lord:
22 In whom ye also are builded
together for an habitation of God
through the Spirit.

***
Revelation 21:3,4
3 And I heard a great voice out of
heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle
of God is with men, and he will dwell
with them, and they shall be his
people, and God himself shall be with
them, and be their God.
4 And God shall wipe away all tears
from their eyes; and there shall be
no more death, neither sorrow, nor
crying, neither shall there be any
more pain: for the former things are
passed away.

For health makes room. 

Give us this day our daily bread.

As in blest Palestina's hour, 
So in our age, 
'T is the same hand unfolds His power, 
And writes the page.

And lead us not into temptation,
 but deliver us from evil.

(Love the incentive)
Love for God and man is the true incentive in both healing and
teaching. Love inspires, illumines, designates, and leads the
way. Right motives give pinions to thought, and strength and
freedom to speech and action. Love is priestess at the altar of
Truth.

For Christian Science brings to view
The great I Am,-

And Love is reflected in love.

(Love casteth out fear)
The more difficult seems the material condition to be overcome by
Spirit, the stronger should be our faith and the purer our love.
The Apostle John says: "There is no fear in Love, but perfect Love
casteth out fear. . . . He that feareth is not made perfect in
Love." Here is a definite and inspired proclamation of Christian
Science.


35:19 Chapter 2: Atonement and Eucharist

(Spiritual Eucharist)
Our baptism is a purification from all error. Our church is
built on the divine Principle, Love. We can unite with this
church only as we are newborn of Spirit, as we reach the Life
which is Truth and the Truth which is Life by bringing forth the
fruits of Love, - casting out error and healing the sick. 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.
