The Power of Inspiration

The most precious companion we can have as we go about our daily occupations is the inspiration of divine Love, and in order that spiritual inspiration may abide with us we must abide in love and good will.

In her Message to The Mother Church for 1902 Mrs. Eddy writes (p. 8): "The life of Christ Jesus, his words and his deeds, demonstrate Love. We have no evidence of being Christian Scientists except we possess this inspiration, and its power to heal and to save." And she also states that Jesus "was inspired by God, by Truth and Love, in all that he said and did" (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 51). We cannot doubt that Jesus entertained in his consciousness only the thoughts and aims which were in accord with his Father's will. Then, in order to demonstrate Love's healing power as he did, we too must express the divine nature with ever greater consistency and rejoicing.

Jesus was successful in every task he undertook, because the basis of his demonstrations was his unity with God. This same conscious unity with God is the basis of our demonstrations as Christian Scientists. It lifts demonstration above the personal, fallible, or variable element, where mortal mind would attempt to place it, into the spiritual, infallible, and invariable might of infinite Mind. Are we grateful enough for the ceaseless inspiration of divine Love?
