In no other one thing seemed Jesus of Nazareth more divine than in his faith in the immortality of his words.
21He said, "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away;" and they have not. The winds of time sweep clean the centuries, but they can
24never bear into oblivion his words. They still live, and to-morrow speak louder than to-day. They are to-day as the voice of one crying in the wilderness, "Make
27straight God's paths; make way for health, holiness, universal harmony, and come up hither." The gran- deur of the word, the power of Truth, is again casting
30out evils and healing the sick; and it is whispered, "This is Science."
Jesus taught by the wayside, in humble homes. He
1spake of Truth and Love to artless listeners and dull disciples. His immortal words were articulated in a
3decaying language, and then left to the providence of God. Christian Science was to interpret them; and woman, "last at the cross," was to awaken the dull senses,
6intoxicated with pleasure or pain, to the infinite mean- ing of those words.
Past, present, future, will show the word and might of
9Truth — healing the sick and reclaiming the sinner — so long as there remains a claim of error for Truth to deny or to destroy. Love's labors are not lost. The
12five personal senses, that grasp neither the meaning nor the magnitude of self-abnegation, may lose sight thereof; but Science voices unselfish love, unfolds infinite good,
15leads on irresistible forces, and will finally show the fruits of Love. Human reason is inaccurate; and the scope of the senses is inadequate to grasp the word of Truth,
18and teach the eternal.
Science speaks when the senses are silent, and then the evermore of Truth is triumphant. The spiritual mon-
21itor understood is coincidence of the divine with the human, the acme of Christian Science. Pure humanity, friendship, home, the interchange of love, bring to earth
24a foretaste of heaven. They unite terrestrial and celes- tial joys, and crown them with blessings infinite.
