"Truth and Love are the substance of being ..."

God Loves You

So what? some may respond. Others may doubt such a statement altogether. To still others it may seem callous to refer a person to God's love, especially in a case of sickness, rather than emphasizing one's own personal love. Christian Science, however, shows that this little statement, God loves you, coupled with an enlightened understanding of spiritual reality, can provide a powerful impetus for healing, comfort, regeneration, and human progress.

In the Bible we find these words of Jeremiah the prophet: "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; God's loving design for man has been recognized by many great spiritual seers and has provided assurance and strength for them. Although it may appear on the surface that these beneficial effects are imagined, or derived from human emotion or belief, Christian Science explains that they are real, powerful, and are based squarely on the truth. In Science, belief or emotions are seen as having no power to effect anything. Power rests with the truth, and God Himself is Truth.
