"Followers of God"

Paul, in his letter to the Ephesians, gave them loving encouragement in these words: "Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; and walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us." This passage is an indicative statement of fact, as well as an admonition to strive with childlike faith and humility to express the qualities of God in daily experience.

In other words, man is by nature the son of God, Spirit, infinite good. He is the reflection of Spirit, the idea of divine Mind, Truth's witness. Christ Jesus' recognition of man's oneness with God enabled him to heal the sick and overcome limitation and death. The Master recognized the perfect man as God's own likeness, right where mortal sense presented a picture of a mortal as sinful, sick, weak, and weary. Jesus knew that man in God's likeness is never limited, corporeal, or fearful and through his spiritual understanding he brought healing into the experience of those who in faith sought his aid.
