"THE HOUSEHOLD OF GOD"

What does it mean to belong to a household? It means to be a member of a family, a participant in all the experiences and daily life of a family. In the second chapter of his epistle to the Ephesians the apostle Paul sums up his discourse on what we were by nature and what we are by grace, with this comforting conclusion: "Therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God." Then we who have been "saved by grace" are "of the household of God," members of His family.

In Christian Science we learn that God's household is the only real household, and that it is universal, spiritual, perfect, harmonious, and eternal. In this household God is the Father-Mother, and man is His child. God loves, protects, feeds, clothes, instructs, influences, controls, and governs His entire household, in which all is good and the divine law is the only law operating in or affecting it. The divine government is supreme, imperative, absolute, and eternal, and it is never interfered with, cut off, obstructed, or reversed by evil of any name or nature.
