Reliance on God

RELIANCE on God is intelligent and loving trust in Principle, not blind faith in an unknown power nor dependence on the human ways and means of personal sense. This confidence in the control of Love, the law of right, is requisite to spiritual sense and the demonstration of Truth for the supremacy of good. Based on the assured integrity of the universe, as coexistent, coeternal, and coextensive, with God, the spiritual and real manifestation of His presence and power, such trust in His infinite rightness and goodness is calm, strong, and unshaken. Divine cause and effect constitute the entire law of harmony for all existence. To repose all confidence in an absolutely good God, is to be elevated above the fear of any other cause or effect, and above the belief of good in any other than the one causation, infinite Spirit, infinitely expressed. From all false beliefs and false trusts Truth calls mortals to escape: "Come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing and I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty."

In the oneness of God, having none other, the student of Christian Science finds the fatherhood of the almighty, eternal Mind, and therein man's sonship to the infinite, and has no apprehension of what mortals might do, for he knows that man is God's image or idea, manifesting only the character or likeness of his Maker. He knows that man has never for an instant been separated from the perfect Principle of his being, and never can be, but is forever in oneness with Truth, Life, and Love; hence there is no evil power that can sentence man to express other than the nature and Mind which is God.
