Thank God for His Kingdom Within Us!
by Florence Roberts
I am so grateful for Mary Baker Eddy, for her masterpiece Science and Health, and all her other writings. I do pray every day that the right appreciation of this wonderful, special gift to mankind will be known around the world, so that her message, the special message of salvation for all the world, may be known and accepted! Great blessings are in these words that she has written. I was so touched by what she says about the kingdom of heaven as: “The abode of Spirit, the realm of the real. No matter is there, no night is there — nothing that maketh or worketh a lie.” Mis. p 174.
I don’t think I’ve ever paid too much attention to this citation, but how wonderful it would be to recall this when those “lying” suggestions come; especially when they come as some awful pain or as something alarming. She says there is no matter there, and no night there, and this kingdom, as Christ Jesus has said, is within all of us! May all of us awake to what is within us, and may we, with the deepest gratitude, nourish and cherish it so that we may gain its blessings of spiritual understanding and dominion over evil. Thus our lives may be an example to others for them to awaken to the kingdom within them, for their freedom.
