The Attraction of Love

In reading Mark's gospel recently, the writer was struck by the statement, "He goeth up into a mountain, and calleth unto him whom he would: and they came unto him." Jesus had been doing many good works, healing all manner of diseases, and everywhere proving the power of good to overcome the belief of evil, thus rousing the hatred of the Pharisees, so that they sought to kill him, thinking that in this way they could stay the progress of Truth. They did not realize that, as Mrs. Eddy says in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 468), "All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation," and that it is impossible to destroy the idea of Mind, the real spiritual man, whom Christ Jesus was showing forth to the world.

To refresh himself by communion with his divine Principle, Love, the Father-Mother God, Jesus, as was his wont, withdrew himself from the people, retiring to the mountain, and "calleth unto him whom he would: and they came unto him." It was not the mere sound of his voice to which those sincere, earnest students responded. It was not personal sense which called and was heard by those ready for the blessing waiting to be conferred upon them. It was the loving desire of the Master to express and spread abroad the healing power of Truth and Love which attracted those spiritually prepared to receive Christ, Truth.
