THE PRINCIPLE OF POWER

The world concerns itself with material power, but Christian Science proves that the only real power is moral and spiritual and that it must be found in its Principle, God. Mary Baker Eddy says in "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany" (p. 278), "The Principle of all power is God, and God is Love."

Power means ability to act, and the power of Love is capable of infinite accomplishment. Christ Jesus knew God as Love and utilized the power of Love as law. He let the forces of Love possess him, act through him, and his knowledge that their source was God gave him access to their full supremacy. He realized the might which supported his unselfed motive to exhibit the truth of God and of man made in His image and likeness, and so he could teach his disciples to pray, "Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever."
