Guests of God

We are in God's kingdom now; we are His guests now: only in belief can we imagine ourselves elsewhere; for the Scripture says, "In him we live, and move, and have our being." Abraham looked not for a material abode, but for "a city ... whose builder and maker is God."

We are in God's kingdom now! What comfort and peace the realization of this fact should bring. Mrs. Eddy writes in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 254), "Pilgrim on earth, thy home is heaven; stranger, thou art the guest of God." As a guest of God, do we accept naturally and without question His unlimited goodness? Or do we not often doubt our Host? Do not we sometimes fear that our Host will not feed us? Do we question that our Host may not provide ample shelter? Are we not too often inclined to believe that there is another kingdom than His, a kingdom of evil, wherein are sin and destruction built upon matter, which may at any time be swept away? Do we not often believe we are in this evil kingdom instead of in God's kingdom, wherein are many mansions of love and mercy?
