"Grace for to-day"

Paul, that faithful Christian warrior who overcame many difficulties through the power of God, was given this divine assurance at a time of seeming trial: "My grace is sufficient for thee." What is this heavenly quality which will enable one to rise superior to everything that would hinder his onward and upward way? A dictionary defines "grace," in part, as "the operation of divine love;" also, "the mercy of God."

We learn in Christian Science that God is infinite good, and that, as Mary Baker Eddy writes (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, pp. 537, 538), He is "Love always,—Love infinitely wise and altogether lovely, who 'seeketh not her own.'" Infinite Love is infinitely manifested, supremely active, illimitably expressed. Grace is mercy, and mercy, loving-kindness. God's creation is the emanation of His boundless love. Included in this all-wise Love is everything that is essential to the harmony, health, perfection, and completeness of that which God has brought forth.
