Overcoming by At-one-ment

In the fading gloom of the early morning three women came to the tomb where the body of Jesus had been laid. As they approached it they asked of one another, "Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre?" But as they looked—lo, the wonder!—the mighty stone which had presented an impossible barrier to them had been rolled away. The power of the Christ, as demonstrated by Jesus, had reversed the material belief of limitation and removed the seeming obstacle to their comprehension of the resurrection with its glorious proof of life eternal. The light of this revelation had dawned somewhat slowly in the thought of Jesus' followers, but afterward it enabled them to heal the sick and to raise the dead, as he had taught them to do.

Human belief in obstruction and in resistance to good appears to be justified by mortal experience, yet the Scriptures unmistakably show that such errors are unknown to the divine Mind and are therefore not cognized by spiritual consciousness. The belief that man is mortal, with a mind of his own apart from God, is the evil that inevitably induces fear of impediments, and limitations to happiness and spirituality. Infinite Mind recognizes no obstacles, for a barrier between Mind and its perfect idea, man, is impossible. The Christ, revealed by Jesus and in Christian Science, has proved false every opposing thought that mortal fears and doubts have appeared to erect between the human consciousness and the recognition of man's at-one-ment with his Father-Mother, God. Mary Baker Eddy discovered this truth of man's oneness with his Maker and gave this revelation to the world through her writings, through establishing The Mother Church organization, and through healing the sick by spiritual means alone.
