From Glory to Glory

In writing of the liberty and the glory of the spirit of the Lord, Paul tells us that we "are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord." This change is naturally the supreme desire of every Christian Scientist. As it is by "the Spirit of the Lord" that the change takes place, the student's aim is to gain a richer, fuller understanding of the Supreme Being named God, and through this understanding he begins to find himself as God's image and likeness.

Because God, Love, is infinite, there is nothing outside or beyond infinite Love, and it is through spiritualization of thought that the student becomes aware of the all-embracing, all-inclusive gentle presence of Love, which is forever loving. The Love which is God knows nought of the vagaries of the human affections, for Love is invariable, and forever bears its beloved from glory to glory.

God loved man before the foundations of the world. Solomon was speaking of wisdom; nevertheless he caught a glorious glimpse of the eternal nature of God and His beloved when he wrote: "The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his way, ... I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was. When there were no depths, I was brought forth.... Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth.... When he prepared the heavens, I was there ... as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him."
