“To understand God is the work of eternity, and demands absolute consecration of thought, energy, and desire.” (Science and Health, page 3)
This statement should not be daunting to us. While eternity may be required to fully comprehend God and His infinite qualities, the pursuit of this understanding is where our joy is, how our life is always fresh and growing in authority and satisfaction. Coming to know God, Life, is a priceless activity.
We can’t gain this expanded awareness by living in a box of limitations. We can’t stay still and expect to move. We can’t be obedient to matter and its false premises and gloomy conclusions, and expect to gain the fullness of life that we naturally have and deserve. We must consecrate ourselves to what is right and real.
Disciplining thought will bring a chaotic life into an order that is like the stars in the heavens—steady and beautiful and broad. We can’t accept a varied array of opinions about life, or speak one thing and do another, and at the same time grasp God’s glorious Truth. We must focus our mind and our energy in the winning direction, and remain faithful. This is not a hardship, for what are we focusing on but eternal Life and infinite Love?
