‘Our salvation is in Love’

From the November 2016 issue of The Christian Science Journal

When I went through Christian Science Primary class instruction—a two-week course on Christian Science—I came away more aware of the importance of the two “great commandments” that Christ Jesus spoke about: love God and love man (your neighbor as yourself; see Matthew 22:35–39). 

I could see how obedience to this divine law is necessary, but I couldn’t get past the “how” of loving my neighbor, my fellow man. Christian Science teaches that this kind of love heals every ill, so certainly it goes beyond just “being nice,” or a spontaneous emotional response to something pleasing.

I struggled long and hard with the question of how to love like a true Christian, knowing that loving others constitutes the spirit of Christianity.
