"The Love that casts out fear"

The prophet Jeremiah said, "The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee." Jer. 31:3; Is there any more to be said about the tender love that God has for His children?

It is a serious mistake in the practice of Christian Science to overlook the fact of divine Love's all-healing love. It is not the will of God to condemn us, and He does not neglect us in our human need. In fact, the greater the need, the greater the manifestation of His love to meet it, although He does not know our problems or sufferings. To say that He meets our needs may require some explanation. It is our ignorance of divine Love that permits a problem or suffering to appear real to us; so when we realize and deeply feel the tender love of God for us, this fills the void and our needs are met.
