Do We Love God?
Christians know the importance of the answer Christ Jesus gave a lawyer who asked him which was the great commandment in the law, the code uttered by Moses centuries earlier. Jesus said, "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind." Matt. 22:37; Then he added, "And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself."
Because of his remarkable ability to express intelligence, Jesus could go straight to the heart of a subject. He loved God with complete sincerity, as his life showed. His precepts and his works always pointed to God as Love, merciful and just, impartial and wise, ever ready to heal and purify and bless. The Master's demand that men love was logical, for he knew man to be God's likeness; and Love's image loves. What Jesus voiced as rules for human conduct represents the divine order of being. In the kingdom of Love, which he said is at hand—cognizable—man does love God supremely and his neighbor perfectly; and nothing can change this God-ordained, God-maintained, eternal fact. But this order greatly needs to be demonstrated.
Christian Science reveals existence as God made it, and it provides the scientific basis from which we may demonstrate love of God and man as laws that never cease acting, forces that perpetually govern the real self.
