Begin—and stay—with God

From the December 2015 issue of The Christian Science Journal


In the Bible, the Gospels give clear indications of Christ Jesus’ healing method. Before the multitude was fed, or the sinner reformed, or the dead raised, Jesus often turned to his Father, God, and acknowledged God’s presence and power with gratitude that divine Love meets the human need.

Jesus taught his followers, “Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33). Were not “all these things” the same essentials we need today—food, clothing, shelter, health? Yes, and Jesus’ method was to lift his thought to divine Love, which always brought the spiritual enlightenment that would result in all needs being met.

In her book No and Yes, Mary Baker Eddy writes: “Good is great and real. Hence its opposite, named evil, must be small and unreal” (p. 32). Jesus’ understanding of this fundamental truth enabled him to heal cases of all types, including immorality and disease.
