The Power of Scientific Speech

"THE words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life." So said Jesus to the doubting and unbelieving questioners on the day after he had fed five thousand of them with a few loaves and fishes. Jesus could speak as he did because he understood God as omniaction, all substance. He saw that man, in his real nature, is the scientific, spiritual reflection of all that God is and does, and that in proportion as this great fact is acknowledged and realized, it is demonstrated. He knew what Mary Baker Eddy discerned and wrote in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 485), that "Mind, not matter, sees, hears, feels, speaks."

How often can we say of our conversation with others, "The words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life"? How much of the time do we protect our words and conversation by the deep realization that God is omniaction, and that man, in Science, perfectly expresses the divine activity and being? When we do this, our human words and acts can be only helpful. Mrs. Eddy writes (No and Yes, p. 2), "I have healed more disease by the spoken than the unspoken word."
