Our Triumph Is in Christ

From the April 1974 issue of The Christian Science Journal

In joyful acknowledgment of divine goodness, Paul wrote, "Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place." II Cor. 2:14; Moffatt translates this passage, "Wherever I go, thank God, he makes my life a constant pageant of triumph in Christ, diffusing the perfume of his knowledge everywhere by me." A New Translation of the Bible by James Moffatt;

Can our lives, too, be constant pageants of triumph? Triumph implies victory, and to triumph in Christ is to conquer the anti-Christ, or resistance to Truth. Our triumph is won, now as in Paul's time, when we vigorously challenge resistance to Truth by our own resistance to error. Adhering step by step to divine Principle, we prove our dominion over the anti-Christ. Then our lives diffuse "the perfume of his knowledge everywhere."

We sometimes hear resistance to Truth referred to as if it were a dark, massive presence "out there" waiting to crush out health and success. But can evil have intelligence and substance when God, good, is the only Mind? Can resistance to the immortal truth of being have presence, power, or identity when God is all powerful, ever present, and the only Life and creator of man?
