"A truer sense of Love"

Love has various definitions. Jesus gave to the world the true sense of love, the right concept of God as Love. Healing the sick, cleansing the sinful, and raising the dead, he demonstrated the power of Love in behalf of mortals. His work, together with his declaration, "My Father worketh hitherto, and I work," proves irrefutably that God is divine Principle, Love.

On page 19 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," its author, Mary Baker Eddy, writes, "Jesus aided in reconciling man to God by giving man a truer sense of Love, the divine Principle of Jesus' teachings, and this truer sense of Love redeems man from the law of matter, sin, and death by the law of Spirit,—the law of divine Love." It is notable that Mrs. Eddy places the achieving of redemption on the basis of the right sense of Love. Material sense subjects mortals to the law of matter, sin, and death; spiritual sense redeems man from this false law and saves him through spiritual law, "the law of divine Love."
