Enjoy inspiring ideas from this week's Bible Lesson

For God so loved the world

Are sin, disease,

and death real?

April 3 - 9

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Jesus is the name of the man who, more than all other men, has presented Christ, the true idea of God, healing the sick and the sinning and destroying the power of death. (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy, p. 473:12–15)
