​‘To individualize infinite power’

In her main work, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy includes a chapter (“Atonement and Eucharist”) in which she comments at length on the sacrifice, triumph, and example of Jesus. Opposite the marginal note “Heaven’s sentinel” she wrote of him: “Forsaken by all whom he had blessed, this faithful sentinel of God at the highest post of power, charged with the grandest trust of heaven, was ready to be transformed by the renewing of the infinite Spirit” (p. 49).

Although not one of us will ever have the same awesome mission that Jesus had as the perfect expression of the Christ, Truth, to be Christian we do need to follow him in demonstrating our own Christlike nature. That is in itself an awesome mission.

This is the end of the issue. Ready to explore further?
