Yielding to Divine Love

On page 35 of "No and Yes" Discoverer of Christian Science and Founder of the Christian Science movement, Mary Baker Eddy, gives us this promise: "When human struggles cease, and mortals yield lovingly to the purpose of divine Love, there will be no more sickness, sorrow, sin, and death." To learn how to yield to divine Principle, Love, is important in the progress of a Christian Scientist.

Considering a dictionary definition of the word "yield," we learn that it means "to give way; give up; submit; surrender." In the practice of yielding we find that it requires constant subduing of our personal sense of self with its multitude of material desires. In giving way to divine Love we are compelled to turn away from material to spiritual thinking. This may seem quite a task, but the self-immolation and spiritual growth resulting from this scientific submission to God brings constant joyous recompense.
