"GOD LOVES YOU"

What mountains of fear have vanished as the truth, "God loves you," has dawned on receptive thought! What courage has come with the blessed thought, "God loves you." To those hungry seekers after Truth, what encouragement has come from the words of the Bible (I John 3:1, 2): "Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God. ... Beloved, now are we the sons of God." This statement is heard by all who attend the Sunday services in Churches of Christ, Scientist, throughout the world. What renewed efforts have been made with the dawning of the thought, "God loves you."

Christ Jesus' tender compassion came from above; it was the clear expression of the Father's love. He spent many solitary hours in prayer apart from his disciples, hours of consecrated communion with Truth and Love, that his love might conform to the divine. He was prepared for even the most unexpected opportunity to reflect the blessed spirit of our Father's love. Luke relates that when the ear of the servant of the high priest was cut off by the sword of an impetuous disciple attempting to avert his Master's arrest and trial, Christ Jesus exercised man's divinely bestowed ability to express the Father's love, and instantaneously healed him.
