Love, the Universal Solvent

In pondering the universal need of love, one devoutly recalls that memorable morning when, by the shore of the Tiberian sea, Jesus "shewed himself again to the disciples." After they had dined, he asked of Peter, "Lovest thou me more than these?" Replying, Peter said, "Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee." Then came the command, "Feed my lambs." The Master asked the second time, and again the third time, "Lovest thou me?" And the second and third times came the tender command, "Feed my sheep." Could the Master's paramount desire have been brought home more significantly? How appealingly simple the command at first appears! How its vast meaning gradually pervades the heart of the Christian Scientist!

Little wonder the students of Christian Science feel unbounded love for and gratitude to their Leader, Mrs. Eddy, whose vision and obedience empowered her to give to humanity her priceless discovery, which richly unfolds the treasures of the Scriptures! In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" she says (p. 113), "The vital part, the heart and soul of Christian Science, is Love."
