The Potency of Love

From the November 1967 issue of The Christian Science Journal


When Christ Jesus comforted his disciples with the words, "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you," john 14:27; he surely must have referred to the power of Love, God, to confer a peace that is more than the mere tranquillity of a material sense of things. His many exhortations to love one's brother indicate that this peace consists of the confident awareness that the power of divine Love, which always governed his thought and motivated his acts, is forever with us all in every generation to guide and protect us.
