"Followers of God"

In his epistle to the Ephesians Paul writes, "Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; and walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us." But how to be a true follower of God is the question which springs spontaneously to the lips.

Now in order to answer the question it is necessary to possess a knowledge of God, to be able to define Him to ourselves. And here is where Christian Science comes in with its wonderful spiritual illumination. If we will turn to page 587 of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," we shall find the definition of God which Mrs. Eddy gives, one of the most enlightening and helpful definitions ever presented to mankind. It reads as follows: "God. The great I am; the all-knowing, all-seeing, all-acting, all-wise, all-loving, and eternal; Principle; Mind; Soul; Spirit; Life; Truth; Love; all substance; intelligence." It takes a lot of study to grasp the meaning of the definition even feebly. But what a reward there is for everyone who gains more than a glimpse into the divine nature through it!
