Divine Love possesses us

What has charge of our lives? To what or to whom do we belong? Are we possessed by good or by evil?

Some may feel that circumstances or ill health or difficult relationships rule their experience. Others may feel utterly alone. Many are driven by an apparently uncontrollable appetite for food, drugs, crime, sex, and so on.

Christian Science points the way to dominion in all these connections. It shows man to be the divinely possessed object of divine Love. And because God is omnipotence—all the power there is—the contrary forces of sensuality, evil, physicality, can be proved powerless. Always held in God's embrace, always subject to God's laws and to His beneficence, man can't be stolen from God's control.
