Love Bearing Witness

"IF Spirit or the power of divine Love bear witness to the truth, this is the ultimatum, the scientific way, and the healing is instantaneous," Mrs. Eddy tells us on page 411 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." Upon examining this interesting definition of how to heal instantaneously, the writer spent many hours seeking to understand that the only ambition any one has who wishes to help his fellow man is to see constantly successful results. The question arises, What does it mean for divine Love to "bear witness to the truth"? The following is given in heartfelt gratitude to the Giver of every good and perfect gift for revealing the longed for answer.

When coming into Christian Science the student often first considers "the scientific statement of being" (Science and Health, p. 468), and in the daily round of duties, a slight burn, a cut, or any seeming discordant condition begets the quickened denial and affirmation of the yet dimly conceived understanding of what he is voicing. Through constant study and application of the truth to one's problem, the mist of mortal mind begins to clear and our outlook takes in a wider scope of demonstration than the overcoming of mere physical ills. One seems to stand on a high mountain, as it were and looking deep into space, seems to become conscious that he is at one with All and hears the voice that spoke to Abraham, "I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect." Herein is the basic commandment, "Be thou perfect." What a task! And yet, what a reward.
