THE LAW OF LIFE

One of the most inspiring lessons of the springtime is the teaching that the law of Life is the only law. If one who had always lived where flowers bloom the entire year had found himself in New England a few weeks ago, he might almost have said that so far as nature was concerned death was the only law. The trees were bare, the earth gave no sign of life, the brooklets were held in an icy embrace, and the birds were silent or far away. All this is changed, and everything about us voices the glad message that Life is everywhere manifest. This eternal fact that there is no other law than the law of God, the law of Life, Truth, and Love, is the teaching of Scripture and of Christian Science.

Christ Jesus knew that God manifests Himself only in the law of Life, and so when all the friends of Lazarus were proclaiming the supposed law of death, he asserted the mandate of Life, and Lazarus "came forth." When Jesus' enemies nailed him to a cross, and his form was laid away in the rocky tomb, he did not give way to any false testimony of the senses; he was at work, as our Leader has said, demonstrating that the law of Life is the only law. His resurrection and ascension was God's proclamation to us that we are to know no other law of being save the law of Life. The ever-living Spirit must work the works of Life alone—it has nothing to do with and knows nothing of death.
