JOY IN OBEDIENCE

Obedience to law is natural to man, God's image. Christian Science unveils the divine order or law of being, in which God is seen as one infinite Person, one all-inclusive Mind, and His ideas as fully subject to Mind, whose knowing gives them existence. Mary Baker Eddy says (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 82): "Man is the offspring and idea of the Supreme Being, whose law is perfect and infinite. In obedience to this law, man is forever unfolding the endless beatitudes of Being; for he is the image and likeness of infinite Life, Truth, and Love." Man's consummate bliss lies in his obedience to God as Love's individualized unfoldment of pure good.

In the realm of Spirit, the kingdom of heaven, which the Master said is at hand, divine law holds full sway. This law, God's will, is the power of Deity. Beyond the illusion of temporal life, it reigns supreme, the force of omnipotence which produces, controls, and maintains the spiritual universe of ideas, which abide perpetually in a state of harmony and perfection.
