Stability and assurance are achieved through obedience to spiritual status

ONE LAW

In these days of lawlessness and increasing restrictions in so many parts of the world, it behooves the student of Christian Science to get a better understanding of the omnipotent and omnipresent law of God. The importance which Mary Baker Eddy attaches to such understanding may be seen from the several hundred references to law in her writings.

In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mrs. Eddy says (p. 307), "Man was not created from a material basis, nor bidden to obey material laws which Spirit never made; his province is in spiritual statutes, in the higher law of Mind." What freedom is vouchsafed to mankind in these words! Since obedience to God's law unfailingly blesses, that which does not bless cannot truly be law and does not govern man or restrict him in any way, nor does it limit his infinite capacities as the image and likeness of God. That which is not God's law cannot be enforced, because it has no reality or power.
