Isaiah 63:7,8
7 I will mention the
lovingkindnesses of the Lord, and the
praises of the Lord, according to all
that the Lord hath bestowed on us,
and the great goodness toward the
house of Israel, which he hath
bestowed on them according to his
mercies, and according to the
multitude of his lovingkindnesses.
8 For he said, Surely they are my
people, children that will not lie:
so he was their Saviour.

***
Psalm 145:1-3,9,10,13
1 I will extol thee, my God, O
king; and I will bless thy name for
ever and ever.
2 Every day will I bless thee; and
I will praise thy name for ever and
ever.
3 Great is the Lord, and greatly to
be praised; and his greatness is
unsearchable.
9 The Lord is good to all: and his
tender mercies are over all his works.

10 All thy works shall praise thee,
O Lord; and thy saints shall bless
thee.
13 Thy kingdom is an everlasting
kingdom, and thy dominion endureth
throughout all generations.

Thus olden faith's pale star now blends 
In seven-hued white! 
Life, without birth and without end, 
Emitting light! 

Give us grace for to-day;
feed the famished affections.

(-18- The only substance)
XVIII. Spirit, God, has created all in and of Himself. Spirit
never created matter. There is nothing in Spirit out of which
matter could be made, for, as the Bible declares, without the
Logos, the Aeon or Word of God, "was not anything made that was
made." Spirit is the only substance, the invisible and
indivisible infinite God. Things spiritual and eternal are
substantial. Things material and temporal are insubstantial.

(-28- Truth demonstrated)
XXVIII. Subject sickness, sin, and death to the rule of health
and holiness in Christian Science, and you ascertain that this
Science is demonstrably true, for it heals the sick and sinning as
no other system can. Christian Science, rightly understood, leads
to eternal harmony. It brings to light the only living and true
God and man as made in His likeness; ;whereas the opposite belief
- that man originates in matter and has beginning and end, that he
is both soul and body, both good and evil, both spiritual and
material - terminates in discord and mortality, in the error which
must be destroyed by Truth. The mortality of material man proves
that error has been ingrafted into the premises and conclusions of
material and mortal humanity.

Christ was not crucified - that doom 
Was Jesus' part; 
For Sharon's rose must bud and bloom 
In human heart. * 
*God was manifest in the Flesh- St.Paul

Enable us to know, -as in heaven, so on earth,- God is omnipotent, supreme.

(Practical preaching)
The best sermon ever preached is Truth practised and
demonstrated by the destruction of sin, sickness, and death.
Knowing this and knowing too that one affection would be supreme
in us and take the lead in our lives, Jesus said, "No man can
serve two masters."
We cannot build safely on false foundations. Truth makes a new
creature, in whom old things pass away and "all things are become
new." Passions, selfishness, false appetites, hatred, fear, all
sensuality, yield to spirituality, and the superabundance of being
is on the side of God, good.
(The uses of truth)
We cannot fill vessels already full. They must first be
emptied. Let us disrobe error. Then, when the winds of God blow,
we shall not hug our tatters close about us.
The way to extract error from mortal mind is to pour in truth
through flood-tides of Love. Christian perfection is won on no
other basis.
