“Jesus…claimed no intelligence, action, nor life separate from God.” (Science and Health, page 136)
In all that Jesus said and did, he honored God as the Source. He consciously and conscientiously remembered and reminded others that he was not a specially gifted human doing miracles and surviving difficulties. Jesus knew with his whole heart that he was never alone. He was aware that his entire existence was at one with God, his Father-Mother-Life.
This active cognizance of His oneness with God was what empowered Jesus and gave him instant access to wisdom, protection, peace, and the pure love that healed. Jesus continually and humbly proclaimed God as the one and only good, the one Life and Truth and Mind. Jesus wasn’t just trying to take the attention away from himself. He was telling us something vitally important!
We are all inseparable from God in intelligence, action, and life, just as he was. Jesus repeated this fact often so we would realize that we, too, are never apart from God; in claiming this truth and relying on God (not self) we, too, could and can do great things. With God honored as our Life, we cannot fail to be good, wise, loving, confident and (just as Jesus always was!) abundantly grateful.
