Where Do You Dwell?

"God is love," wrote John in an epistle, "and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him." I John 4:16; Can you conceive of a safer refuge, a more satisfying habitation? Think what such a dwelling place would mean to one living in poverty, functioning under the heavy weight of prejudice, bigotry, discrimination, or fear!

The acknowledgment that man, the child of God, actually lives in God, in Love, and therefore directly partakes of all that God bountifully provides, can be the first step for us out of what may appear to be an incurable or insurmountable material condition.

Mrs. Eddy recognized God's omnipotent love for man, which is sufficient to deliver us from the deepest pit of hopelessness and despair. She states: "A few immortal sentences, breathing the omnipotence of divine justice, have been potent to break despotic fetters and abolish the whipping-post and slave market; but oppression neither went down in blood, nor did the breath of freedom come from the cannon's mouth. Love is the liberator." Science and Health, p. 225; Sin, sickness, deprivation, injustice, loneliness, have no place in Love, God. We must awake to our relationship with divine Life and Love, which is our only real relationship.
