Glorifying God

The prophet Jeremiah, speaking in the name of God, said, "Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: but let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the Lord which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the Lord."

Spiritual seers in all ages have discerned the fact that all the real and abiding good which comes to men is attributable to God, divine Mind, and is not derived from any other source. The mistake of believing that any actual good comes from the so-called human or mortal mind is corrected by the understanding that, in reality, divine Mind is the only Mind. There is no other source of intelligence, enlightenment, action, power, or law. Our need, then, is to acknowledge God as the only creating and governing Principle and to glorify Him as the origin of health, holiness, and harmony.

Christ Jesus persistently turned the thought of the people of his time away from personality to impersonal Truth as the healer of sin and disease. There are several recorded instances in the Gospels which indicate that those who were healed through the Master's ministrations recognized that the healing resulted from his understanding of the ever-available power of God, Spirit, Mind. For example, in recording the healing of those who were "lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others," Matthew says, "And they glorified the God of Israel."
