Joyous Expression

The Psalmist sang, "In thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore." Joy is a spiritual quality. It is spiritually sustained and spontaneously expressed. Man coexists with God; therefore man, realizing this spiritual oneness, is always conscious of joy.

Christian Science teaches that man reflects Mind in all the qualities of Spirit. Lack, sorrow, sickness, sin, disease, and death, having no place in divine Mind, cannot be found in man. Therefore, they cannot interfere with the harmony of man, which is intact. Our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, writes in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 276): "Harmony in man is as real and immortal as in music. Discord is unreal and mortal." Man, reflecting God, expresses perfection, power, and joy continually, and has God-given dominion over all.
