Humility and Dominion

Humility and dominion go hand in hand. Where one is found, the other is sure to be. He who said, "Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God," knew full well that the son is one with the Father, and that the infinite goodness of God is reflected, perfectly, by His son.

Jesus of Nazareth was at once the humblest and the mightiest of men. He claimed no power apart from God, but through acknowledging God as the one and only source of all power he himself expressed more power and dominion than any man who ever lived on the earth. He walked on the water, stilled the tempest, fed the multitude, healed the sick, raised the dead. And in explanation of these marvelous manifestations of divine power, he said, "The Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works."

Mary Baker Eddy, that great interpreter of the words and works of the Master, has written on pages 30 and 31 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," "In meekness and might, he was found found preaching the gospel to the poor." And again, on page 39 of the same book she wrote, "Meekly our Master met the mockery of his unrecognized grandeur."
