"A truer sense of Love"

IN an article entitled "Love," Mrs. Eddy exclaims: "What a word! I am in awe before it" (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 249). On the next page she states, "I make strong demands on love, call for active witnesses to prove it, and noble sacrifices and grand achievements as its results." Reading these words, one thinks of Jesus' "strong demands on love." His "noble sacrifices and grand achievements" are without parallel, still standing as the goal of aspiration for humanity.

In the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," our Leader states (p. 19), "Jesus aided in reconciling man to God by giving man a truer sense of Love, the divine Principle of Jesus' teachings." A definition of "reconcile" is "to restore to harmony." Is not one reconciled to God when he is restored to the true consciousness of oneness with his creator, the divine Father-Mother Love, that Love which is "the divine principle of Jesus' teachings"?

When divine Principle is seen as the source or origin of all reality, Love's creative nature is better understood. In such spiritual understanding is to be found the kingdom of heaven, reached through a true sense of Love's ever presence.
