DIVINE SCIENCE: "ONE WEB OF CONSISTENCY"

Truth demonstrated is consistency, for Truth's nature is eternal and changeless. Truth is one in quality throughout, there being no part or quality out of character or in conflict with any other; and man, infinitely and perfectly reflecting the wholeness of Truth, is consistent. These truths, taught and proved in Christian Science as demonstrable realities, have the certain effect, as they are understood spiritually, of an ever-increasing consistency in individual human activity. What divine Love prompts us to begin, we will finish. That which intelligent Truth motivates us to promise, we will fulfill. The loving impulsion to serve, which emanates from Principle, we will carry out in the face of opposition.

Our inspiring example in regard to the last-mentioned fact is Christ Jesus. To those who opposed his healing on the Sabbath day he explained, "My Father worketh hitherto, and I work" (John 5:17). His persecutors did not understand the supremacy of divine authority over human; but their lack of perception did not prevent Jesus from consistently maintaining the life-giving facts of Truth and the healing consciousness of Love. As a result of his spiritual clear-sightedness not only were the sick, sinning, and dying restored to normalcy, but Jesus himself proved to humanity his full sonship and hence heirdom with the Father, his eternal, living Principle.
