UNSELFED LOVE – 7

Beloved Brethren:It is conceded that our shadows follow us in the sunlight wherever we go; but I ask for more, even this: That this dear church shall be pursued by her substance, the immortal fruition of her unselfed love, and that her charity, which “seeketh not her own” but another’s good, shall reap richly the reward of goodness.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, The First Church of Christ, Scientist and Miscellany, p.19:18)

UNSELFED LOVE – 6

We cannot serve two masters. Do we love God supremely? Are we honest, just, faithful? Are we true to ourselves? “God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” To abide in our unselfed better self is to be done forever with the sins of the flesh, the wrongs of human life, the tempter and temptation, the smile and deceit of damnation. When we have overcome sin in all its forms, men may revile us and despitefully use us, and we shall rejoice, “for great is [our] reward in heaven.”  (Eddy, Mary Baker, The First Church of Christ, Scientist and Miscellany, p.6:3)

UNSELFED LOVE – 5 

St. Paul writes: “Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.” To attain peace and holiness is to recognize the divine presence and allness. Jesus said: “I am the way.” Kindle the watch-fires of unselfed love, and they throw a light upon the uncomplaining agony in the life of our Lord; they open the enigmatical seals of the angel, standing in the sun, a glorified spiritual idea of the ever-present Godin whom there is no darkness, but all is light, and man’s immortal being. The meek might, sublime patience, wonderful works, and opening not his mouth in self-defense against false witnesses, express the life of Godlikeness. Fasting, feasting, or penance,merely outside forms of religion,fail to elucidate Christianity: they reach not the heart nor renovate it; they never destroy one iota of hypocrisy, pride, self-will, envy, or hate. The mere form of godliness, coupled with selfishness, worldliness, hatred, and lust, are knells tolling the burial of Christ.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, Message ’02, p.16:12)

And no emperor is obeyed like the man “clouting his own cloak”working alone with God, yea, like the clear, far-seeing vision, the calm courage, and the great heart of the unselfed Christian hero.    (Eddy, Mary Baker, Message ’01, p.30:23

UNSELFED LOVE – 3 

The reformer has no time to give in defense of his own life’s incentive, since no sacrifice is too great for the silent endurance of his love. What has not unselfed love achieved for the race? All that ever was accomplished, and more than history has yet recorded.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, Miscellaneous Writings, p.238:7-11)

We walk in the footsteps of Truth and Love by following the example of our Master in the understanding of divine metaphysics. Christianity is the basis of true healing. Whatever holds human thought in line with unselfed love, receives directly the divine power.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, Science and Health With Key To The Scriptures, p.192:27)

UNSELFED LOVE – 1 

The prayer that reforms the sinner and heals the sick is an absolute faith that all things are possible to God,a spiritual understanding of Him, an unselfed love. Regardless of what another may say or think on this subject, I speak from experience. Prayer, watching, and working, combined with self-immolation, are God’s gracious means for accomplishing whatever has been successfully done for the Christianization and health of mankind.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, Science and Health With Key To The Scriptures, p.1:1)
