Isaiah 45:11-14,22
11 Thus saith the Lord, the Holy
One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me
of things to come concerning my sons,
and concerning the work of my hands
command ye me.
12 I have made the earth, and
created man upon it: I, even my
hands, have stretched out the
heavens, and all their host have I
commanded.
13 I have raised him up in
righteousness, and I will direct all
his ways: he shall build my city, and
he shall let go my captives, not for
price nor reward, saith the Lord of
hosts.
14 Thus saith the Lord, The labour
of Egypt, and merchandise of Ethiopia
and of the Sabeans, men of stature,
shall come over unto thee, and they
shall be thine: they shall come after
thee; in chains they shall come over,
and they shall fall down unto thee,
they shall make supplication unto
thee, saying, Surely God is in thee;
and there is none else, there is no
God.
22 Look unto me, and be ye saved,
all the ends of the earth: for I am
God, and there is none else.

Forever present, bounteous, free, 
Christ comes in gloom; 
And aye, with grace towards you and me, 
For health makes room. 

Give us this day our daily bread.

Cardinal point 4 - Column 3 - Extended



(Mind's true camera)
The fading forms of matter, the mortal body and material earth,
are the fleeting concepts of the human mind. They have their day
before the permanent facts and their perfection in Spirit appear.
The crude creations of mortal thought must finally give place to
the glorious forms which we sometimes behold in the camera of
divine Mind, when the mental picture is spiritual and eternal.
Mortals must look beyond fading, finite forms, if they would gain
the true sense of things. Where shall the gaze rest but in the
unsearchable realm of Mind? We must look where we would walk, and
we must act as possessing all power from Him in whom we have our
being.
(Self-completeness)
As mortals gain more correct views of God and man, multitudinous
objects of creation, which before were invisible, will become
visible. When we realize that Life is Spirit, never in nor of
matter, this understanding will expand into self-completeness,
finding all in God, good, and needing no other consciousness.
(Spiritual proofs of existence)
Spirit and its formations are the only realities of being.
Matter disappears under the microscope of Spirit. Sin is
unsustained by Truth, and sickness and death were overcome by
Jesus, who proved them to be forms of error. Spiritual living and
blessedness are the only evidences, by which we can recognize true
existence and feel the unspeakable peace which comes from an
all-absorbing spiritual love.
When we learn the way in Christian Science and recognize man's
spiritual being, we shall behold and understand God's creation, -
all the glories of earth and heaven and man.
