Let Love come into his bones like oil

by Mary Beth Singleterry

I would like to share something that I found in the book “Mary Baker Eddy‘s Lessons of the Seventh Day.” Very often I will get requests from people who would like help with joints, or limbs, and bones, and various things like that. One day I turned to this on page 131 of that book, where Mrs. Eddy said “let love come into his bones like oil. In Psalms 6:2 it says, “OH LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed: and from Ezekiel 37:4 “O ye dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.” Mrs. Eddy says, “And your bones shall rejoice, for God governs them.” In Psalms 51:8, “Make me hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.”

I thought that was so beautiful to “let love come into his bones like oil.” We know oil as a lubricant, and that’s really dry bones, sore bones or whatever we might have. When we think of oil and it being a lubricant and coming from God. I love, as I know you all do as well the 23rd Psalm. The psalmist David says “Thou anointest my head with oil, my cup runneth over.” The beautiful definition Mrs. Eddy gives of oil in Science and Health is, “Consecration; charity; gentleness; prayer; heavenly inspiration.” Those are beautiful things to think about. I think of that 23rd Psalm every morning, that we should have ourselves anointed with oil, with this beautiful definition of what oil is. Fresh every morning, and to keep ourselves fresh and new and ready for the day ahead, so that we are lubricated, and limber, and feeling ready for the day. I am so grateful for these beautiful thoughts we get from our dear Mrs. Eddy, from our Bible, and from Christ Jesus, that we can make practical and use in our daily life. Because they certainly do bring healing to every part of our body including our bones.
