God's Law of Reward

God's law of reward is at hand. It is greater and more powerful than any limiting supposition to the contrary. It is flowing abundantly to all men all the time; and it never fails. It is always in operation; and no one is outside the action of this divine law. How to avail ourselves of it is the question that Christian Science answers.

Christian Science shows that God is a God of abundance; that He is good, and at hand. We become aware of the presence of God, good, through a better apprehension of spiritual reality, and also by being freed from the limitations of material thinking. We must define success as Jesus defined it, when he said, "And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was." Thus he described individual glory as of God, and as belonging to God's image and likeness throughout time and eternity. We must make this visible through living in conformity with the standards of true Christianity,—brotherly love, justice, righteous activity. We must dispel from our thinking the miasma of ambition for personal aggrandizement. Calm recognition that God's law of reward is at hand is far different from the ruthlessness and troubled strife of pride, worldly ambition for prestige, place, and power. It is also very different from the inertia of discouragement, with its belief in failure.
