The Healing Presence of the Christ

How gentle, how powerful is the Christ! The Christ is the manifestation of divine Love, the tender ever-presence Jesus revealed. Today, as in Jesus' time, the realization of the presence of the Christ brings the activity of God's love and the operation of omnipotent power into our affairs, dispelling that which is unlike the all-harmonious Life that is God. The Christ causes us to be aware that God, divine Love, the one Spirit, is indeed our Life, and that we are really spiritual ideas, God's perfect reflection.

These facts were made clear to a student of Christian Science at a time of great need. He was struck in the eye by a sharp object. He fell on his back with pain, and there he remained for a while. But the activity of the Christ was going on.

The Christ, the true sense of being, the manifestation of divine Love, came to his thought. It made him aware of Love as the only power, the only cause; it gave him the assurance that God's love was the only activity or influence in his life. It caused him to realize the unchanging, indestructible, perfect nature of sight— that sight belongs to the all-harmonious Spirit and that perfect sight is ever reflected by spiritual man.
