Our lifeblood

Figuratively, lifeblood means vitalizing force; and literally, God is the life-giving, life-sustaining power of all His creation. Mrs. Eddy writes, "Man's individual being must reflect the supreme individual Being, to be His image and likeness; and this individuality never originated in molecule, corpuscle, materiality, or mortality." No and Yes, p. 26. The capacity to live fully and develop productively inheres in the true individuality of each of us. But how can we tap our divine resources of vitality and heal others, or be healed ourselves, of belief in blood disorder or depletion? Christ Jesus, the exemplar of ideal manhood, answers: "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." John 10:10.

Jesus' entire healing ministry shows that divine Life—the same Life that impelled the Master's unparalleled resurrection—powerfully supports our efforts to prove that man is the spiritual child of God. In every age, deific law supplies Christian disciples with renewal of the stamina and endurance essential to spiritual progress and divine service. Whatever is tributary to the Christianization of human life expresses perfect quality and complete quantity.
