Love's Answer

Christ Jesus declared God to be Spirit, and St. John knew Him as divine Love. In the fullness of time Mary Baker Eddy taught that God, as Spirit, Life, Truth, and Love, guides, governs, and protects all. As we study her writings we also learn that Spirit is all-seeing, all-hearing, and all-knowing Mind.

John the Baptist caught a glimpse of this truth while preaching in the wilderness. The priests and Levites came to him with no thought of repentance, but to question him as to his origin, saying (John 1:22), "Who art thou?" John, in his reply, claimed no human relationships, no personality; he simply answered (John 1:23), "I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness. Make straight the way of the Lord." The next day when he saw Jesus coming to him, John said to his disciples, "Behold the Lamb of God." Jesus was not recognized as a relative, or as Jesus of Nazareth, but only as the Lamb or Son of God, "which taketh away the sin of the world."
