Last night at our weekly Testimony meeting (time for us all to share our healings, thoughts and sense of gratitude for all the blessings we receive) the Reader was reading from the Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, and these words struck me like lightning:
God, without the image and likeness of Himself, would be a nonentity, or Mind unexpressed. He would be without a witness or proof of His own nature. Spiritual man is the image or idea of God, an idea which cannot be lost nor separated from its divine Principle.
Sometimes one hears things as new, and even though I have read that before, the realisation at that moment that we are God expressed filled me with joy. To know how wholly pure, upright and free we are, as a matter of course, every day, every moment woke me up to Her power. To be expressing God shows the magnificence of His love bouncing back and through our lives, the gift of the creation of us. We are the effect of that one cause and nothing untoward can touch us.
That’s quite a thought!
