Harmony in Christ

Jesus of Nazareth in his ministry showed men the way of harmony through awaking them to the presence of the Christ, God's spiritual idea. He acted in obedience to the Father's will, in fulfillment of divine prophecy, and his healing work was the proof of his Messiahship. In the Acts of the Apostles it is stated that he "went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him." He went about demonstrating God's love, proving man's right to enter the kingdom of heaven freely. God has been, and is, eternally with men, for God is infinite Life and our only Father. This fact, realized in our human affairs, lifts us into harmony.

Mary Baker Eddy has written in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 288), "The Christ-element in the Messiah made him the Way-shower, Truth and Life." True consciousness is divine, not human; it is the kingdom of heaven, harmony, within us. God, Life, expresses Himself in harmonious action; and as we bear witness individually to "the Christ-element," life in Christ appears, and evil begins to disappear. This is a measure of progress towards immortality.
