"If with all your heart"

The children of Israel received, through the utterances of Moses, many an indication of the certain availability of God, infinite good, in human affairs. One of these is recorded in Deuteronomy (4:29), in which, after warning his followers against false gods, the Hebrew leader declared: "But if from thence thou shalt seek the Lord thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul." This is the passage which in the oratorio "Elijah" has the following rendering: "If with all your heart ye truly seek me, ye shall ever surely find me."

By its definition of God, Christian Science makes plain that to find Him means to find that which satisfies every human need. It means finding Life, which is perfect and eternal; finding Love, which obliterates fear and all that is unlike itself; finding Mind, which is incapable of error or ignorance. It means the attainment of completeness, peace, and the consciousness of the infinitude of good. For all these are embraced in the nature of God, as Christian Science reveals it. And this Science demonstrates that God is unfailingly available to all through spiritual understanding.
