"Ye are all the children of light"

What joyous words were those of Paul to the church of the Thessalonians: "Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness." Surely the great Apostle to the Gentiles had learned the lesson of the Master well,—the lesson which taught the fatherhood of God,—and had imparted it faithfully to the Christians of that far-away city by the Ægean Sea.

We may not know exactly how these early Christians looked upon their true selfhood; but this we can be certain of, they understood enough about the real man to render them happy in the lives they led, and joyful in the contemplation of eternal life. Jesus had not imparted the knowledge we now possess of divine Science to his disciples, and these disciples could not therefore bestow it upon others; but faith and hope and love and the certainty of spiritual reality the Master did bestow, and these became characteristic of every one of his loyal followers.
