Daily Inspiration, February 3rd

“He that touches the hem of Christ’s robe and masters his mortal beliefs, animality, and hate, rejoices in the proof of healing,–in a sweet and certain sense that God is Love.” (Science and Health, page 569)

What does it mean to touch the hem of Christ’s garment? Well, first off, it surely must mean a measure of faith, a willingness to believe—even if not perhaps to fully understand—that the Truth is able to set us free. It is coming into the presence of the Truth of God and of man as His child, and wanting to know more.

It also takes humility. To touch the hem of Christ’s robe is to do what the woman in the press did with Jesus, and was healed of a long-standing condition by her action. It is going to our knees before the higher idea of man and of God. It is humbling that sense of self and self-justification, and simply kneeling before God’s wisdom and Love.

This humbling receptivity, this willingness, requires that we relinquish its opposite. We can’t be willful and full of our own opinions. We can’t keep clinging to those things that would keep that garment of divine Love out of reach—hatred, resentment, false pleasures and reliances, material limits. We have to give up arguing for the reasons why not and simply honor the goodness of the Christ, rejoicing in the power of this Truth and in the sweet certainty of God’s healing Love.
