Becoming a Law to One's Self

When Mrs. Eddy wrote in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 458), "The Christianly scientific man reflects the divine law, thus becoming a law unto himself," she presented a fundamental truth which all must eventually recognize and put into practice. At all times the subject of spiritual law and its activities—its power and its control—is one of deep interest; and few things are of greater importance in the working out of every one's life-problem than the understanding of divine law and its application.

In God's universe all that exists is there because of and in accordance with His unchangeable, immutable law of good. Whatever God wills is expressed in obedience to and in harmony with His perfect law, and is always under the control of that law. In infinite space there is no least idea of God which is not eternally under His law, subject to it, governed and protected by it. Never can God's ideas go beyond or outside of His law. Never can they express anything contrary to it. This is at once the joy and comfort of all His creatures. Whatever God knows must be law-governed, must abide in divine law, must express that law. It would be utterly impossible for any thought of divine Mind to exist or act contrary to this perfect, invincible law,—this law which is always the direct activity of the infinite Principle which is divine Love itself!
