GLORIFYING GOD

From the April 1950 issue of The Christian Science Journal


CHRIST JESUS' loyalty to God was unswerving in times of persecution. Fully conscious of his at-one-ment with God, the great First Cause and only creator, he knew that his mission was to prove God's great love to man.

His loyalty was put to the supreme test when it seemed to mortal sense that his mission had failed in spite of the healing and blessing he had brought to mankind. He, however, never lost sight of his real being in God, and when faced with the cross, lifted his eyes to heaven and prayed (John 17:1), "Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee." His one thought was to glorify God, and so he was glorified; that is, after his resurrection from the tomb he continued to rise above materiality until he attained the glorified experience of the ascension, the full and perfect consciousness that Life is Spirit, God.

This wonderful friend of mankind promised that the Comforter would come and lead into all truth. This Comforter is Christian Science, the final and complete revelation of Truth, which by its healing and regenerating power is giving practical proof for all time that Jesus' teachings are true, that his mission succeeded, and that God is All-in-all; hence evil is impotent.
