Giving God the Glory

There are two passages, one in Revelation, the other in Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, which in beautiful and forceful language accord all the glory to God. The one in Revelation runs, "Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created." That in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 520) reads: "Unfathomable Mind is expressed. The depth, breadth, height, might, majesty, and glory of infinite Love fill all space. That is enough!" Full acknowledgment there of God as the sole creator, the All-in-all, the omnipotent and omnipresent Mind!

Christian Science glorifies God. It could not do otherwise, since it reveals His true nature. Christian Science declares God to be all-inclusive, self-existent Mind or Spirit. And because God is infinite, He is omnipresent. These are tremendous truths, in that they imply that Life, Love, Truth, good, fill all space, are present everywhere. When one in some degree realizes these truths, is it possible for him to fail to accord the glory to God? Many, through the study of Christian Science, are beginning to comprehend the infinitude of God's being, His allness, His illimitable goodness and love. And how they rejoice in the revelation they have received! How they delight to know that the vision of God's allness must inevitably blot out every suggestion that anything exists outside of Himself!
