Keep yourself in the love of God

From the May 2017 issue of The Christian Science Journal


When jarring events have taken place in my life and community, in the nation, or in the world, I’ve found wise counsel in the New Testament book of Jude: “Keep yourselves in the love of God” ( 1:21 ). Keeping ourselves in the “love of God” is a spiritual state of thought that has at times felt to me much like sheltering in a safe, known, and trusted physical location.
