"Seek to Define God to your own Consciousness"

IN our Leader's Message of June, 1901, a message that has sounded the bugle call to all Christian Scientists to advance, she says on page four: "As Christian Scientists you seek to define God to your own consciousness, by feeling and applying the nature and practical possibilities of divine Love."

On my second reading of the message this sentence stood out as if written "with the point of a diamond." Here was the whole of Christian Science—of practical Christianity. Here was the line of my own work plainly marked out. "What must I do to be saved?" I must seek to define God correctly to my consciousness, and keep this definition in full view. How can I do this? The answer follows: "By feeling and applying the nature and practical possibilities of divine Love."
