Sonship

We are comforted in every need by knowing the presence of our Father-Mother God. No loneliness or fear can exist within the radiant consciousness of God's nearness, of the tender protection, the watchful care and gentle guidance of our Mother's love; of the strength, the divine power and unfaltering courage of our Father, always at hand to bless us. Through the teachings of Christian Science we learn to know ourselves as the beloved sons and daughters of God, dwelling always in His household, governed by His law, and maintained in blessed, joyous, mutually satisfying relationship with all His children.

Christian Science teaches us to treasure this priceless heritage of sonship, and to keep our thought of this divine relationship always clearly before us. Let us see how greatly it figured in Jesus' life and work. We are told in the Gospels that Jesus came to John to be baptized, and that when he came out of the water, "he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him: and there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased." Thus was his sonship with God revealed clearly to him. Jesus lived and proved this sonship, teaching and healing mankind, until, in the mountaintop experience which we call the transfiguration, his sonship was also revealed to those disciples whose thought was prepared to perceive it. We read again, that "a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him."
