LAW AND ORDER

Those who come to Christian Science usually do so in search of health, but they soon find that in order to insure its permanent possession they must attain to harmony, and in their efforts to secure this they cannot too often give heed to the familiar adage, "Order is heaven's first law." Diseases are frequently spoken of as disorders, and this is a correct designation. The healing of disease in Christian Science is therefore the restoring of order to the human mind and body by the understanding of spiritual law and its eternal order. Mrs. Eddy says that in the law of Love "nature and God are one and the natural order of heaven comes down to earth" (Science and Health, p. 118).

It is surely well worth while to pause and inquire what "the natural order of heaven" means. As we do this we instinctively recall the psalmist's words, "The heavens declare the glory of God," and we think of the law and order so gloriously expressed throughout the universe, even to the present confessedly imperfect sense of things. The Christian Scientist learns that to man is given the glory and honor of expressing the might and majesty, the law and order of divine Principle, infinite Mind. As this truth dawns upon one, he begins to experience order instead of disorder, the action of divine law instead of lawlessness, and this results not from the mere recognition of the divine order, it is gained by an intelligent sense of divine order and conformity to it.
