One cannot read far in the record of Christ Jesus' days among men without seeing that his purpose was to glorify God by showing all mankind the fathomless purity of Spirit and goodness of Love. At the end of his mission he said, in addressing the Father whom he had served so well (John 17:4), "I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do." His glorification of the Father proved him to be the glorified Son.

The Master worked on earth, and by bringing the Word—the Christ, Truth—to bear upon the fleshly mind, he proved that the will of God is for the health and sinlessness and immortality of man. He showed mankind the love God holds for His children and the manifold ways in which it can be utilized. Because the Flesh is only a substratum of the so-called human mind, the mind must be healed if the ills of the flesh are to be destroyed. Mary Baker Eddy says in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 184), "The Word will be made flesh and dwell among mortals, only when man reflects God in body as well as in mind."
