Love is all there is to you

From the February 2011 issue of The Christian Science Journal

If there is one thing that drives the way we think and act, it is our sense of identity. If we understand ourselves to be intelligent, when confronted with a problem we rejoice before it—rather than trembling at the challenge. This is a great clue to the freedom and power that come with understanding our spiritual identity. Especially when we realize it is the only identity we have.

And we have the greatest example of all in Jesus.

The master Christian obviously had a very different sense of identity from those around him. There was nothing human about the power he exercised. It enabled him to heal those who were sick and transform the lives of sinners. Hence, if we are intent on even beginning to emulate his works on earth—demonstrating the Christ-spirit by having a Christlike sense of identity—then we need to have a sense of what that identity entails.
