On speaking with authority

From the December 1983 issue of The Christian Science Journal

How secure we feel when we can speak with authority. We know the subject we're talking about, and our words ring with the assurance that comes of certainty.

We all have times when we'd like to overcome timidity and speak the healing ideas of Truth and Love with assurance and dominion. And we can as we become familiar with the truth of being and realize the authority this truth gives us.

Our true selfhood is spiritual man, the manifestation of God, the perfect Mind. Man is not an inadequate mortal trying with trembling and fearful words to convey spiritual truths to others. Man is divine Mind's own expression! He is the very embodiment of Mind's intelligence, wisdom, and spiritual understanding. As God's manifestation, man reflects Mind's ability to express its own ideas in all their perfection. Man is God's reflection.
