God's law governs man

Does God govern? Is God the lawmaker, and are His laws obeyed? Does man dwell under the government of God? Both the Bible and Christian Science answer yes to these questions.

Some readers of the Bible assume that God governs in heaven but that His reign has been extended only to a limited extent and under restricted conditions to mortals. Isaiah saw God's government as a promise: "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder." Isa. 9:6; The life of Christ Jesus means that this promise of Isaiah truly can be fulfilled for all, that the Christ is in reality present with us, now and always. Therefore we can experience divine government unfolding God's plan for His creation in proportion as we accept it.
