Christian Science: the Gift of God

Christian Science , with its sublime revelation of spiritual man's eternal oneness with omnipotence, omnipresence, and omniscience, is God's supreme gift to men in this age. This Science of Life, when understood and utilized in our daily affairs, opens up new vistas of radiant beauty, health, and holiness, destroying the false fears and fetters of materiality, with its delusions of sin and sorrow, discord and disease.

Regarding this incomparable gift of God to men, Mary Baker Eddy has written (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 5), "Christian Science comes to reveal man as God's image, His idea, coexistent with Him—God giving all and man having all that God gives." Who, then, would wish to resist or to refuse to accept this Science, the divine Principle of which liberates from self-imposed burdens and bondage, and unerringly leads and lights the way to spiritual freedom and dominion?

In his parable of the "pearl of great price," Christ Jesus tells us that the one in search of this gem sold all that he had so that he might acquire it. Unprotestingly the sacrifice was made in order to obtain this deeply desired jewel, because its true worth was recognized and appreciated. Have we not in Christian Science this inestimably precious possession, which we may cherish, enjoy, and use to the fullest extent, as we are willing to renounce material-mindedness, with its limiting beliefs of fear, failure, hatred, lack, and welcome into our consciousness the imperishable substance of unselfed love, humility, purity, and forgiveness?
