Demonstrating Love

All Christian Scientists accept John's definition of God as "love." They therefore recognize that if each one is to prove he is individually and spiritually the image and likeness of God, each must understand and demonstrate the love which is holy and divine. They are none of them deceived into believing that this is a light undertaking; they know that only the most unselfed consecration and effort can enable them thus to manifest their unity with God, divine Love. Through the revelation of Christian Science, however, they are shown that it is a glorious pathway they are to traverse—this pathway which leads continually away from evil to good.

Few come to Christian Science without for the most part having known something of that heart hunger which results from the seeming lack of loving and being loved divinely. None of them had previously understood that there is an absolute Science which perfectly defines both Love and loving and points the way whereby every supposititious counterfeit may be recognized and avoided.

We all love to talk about Love. We love to talk of how this Love may be expressed in various fashion. It is, however, of yet more consequence so to live love that the sick are instantaneously healed thereby. And yet such living is the acknowledged goal of every honest student of Christian Science. Then how is such living to be brought about?
