"The spiritual essence of blood is sacrifice." So wrote Mrs. Eddy, the beloved Leader of Christian Science, in the chapter on Atonement and Eucharist (p. 25) in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." When we remember that in all ordinary belief blood stands for life, it is illuminating to be told that sacrifice is "the spiritual essence of blood." Because Christian Science shows that all existence is based in divine Mind, it does not take long for one who accepts this teaching to understand that if he would find true life he must mentally sacrifice all that pertains to the beliefs in a material sense of life.
Sacrifice, therefore, may be said to be the yielding of nothing and the gaining of something; the letting go of the false and the winning of the true. To the human sense this may often seem to involve considerable struggle, since the illusions of material belief are not always readily unseen and thereby relinquished.
