“For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light”_ (Eph. 5:8)

The greatest miracle I’ve seen of eternal life affecting mentality was in a girl I’ll call Mary. Mary had spent seven years in the first grade without even learning to write her name. The authorities asked her parents to take her out of school when she was fourteen years old.

As an eighteen-year-old, she behaved like a two-year-old. If she happened not to be sitting with her mother in the service, she would crawl or slide under the pews, or else she would lift up her skirt and step over them, to get where her mother was.

Then one night, during an evangelistic revival meeting, Mary came to the altar. There she received eternal life – the nature of God. A drastic change occurred instantly. The very next night she sat in the service and behaved like any eighteen-year-old young lady. She had fixed her hair and dressed up. Her mentality seemed to have increased overnight.

Soon afterwards, she went away to visit relatives, and there she met and married a neighboring farm boy. Many years later, I learned that after the accidental death of her husband, she had become a prosperous businesswoman who was her own financier and contractor on a housing addition she was building in her city!

_I walk as a child of light in the Lord. I walk in the light of life._

_”God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth”_ *(John 4:24)*.

Divine healing, though it is manifested in the physical, is spiritual. It is not mental, as Christian Science and other metaphysical teachers claim. Now don’t misunderstand me. People get some results through mental science. The mind does, to a great extent, control the body, and a person could get some results that way.

I know people who seemed to be miraculously healed through metaphysical cults. And I’ve heard people say, “If they’re healed, God must have done it.”

But, no, not necessarily. If it’s mental healing, their minds produced it. I would rather stay sick and not be healed than to be healed through some unbelieving cult.

Metaphysical religions such as Christian Science are not biblical. They believe that God is mind, and, in effect, that their mind is God. They believe that Jesus Christ is an idea in the divine mind of God and that He did not actually come in the flesh. And if you hold that idea in your mind, they say, it will produce certain results.

First John 4:2 says, “Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God.” When I talk about the Lord Jesus Christ, I’m not talking about some idea; I’m talking about the Son of God!

Jesus Christ of Nazareth came in the flesh and walked the shores of Galilee. When I talk about God, I’m not talking about my mind or your mind or someone else’s mind! I’m talking about a divine Personality – the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Divine, scriptural healing is not mental as Christian Science and other metaphysical teachers think; it’s spiritual. Neither is it physical, as the medical world teaches.

_Jesus Christ came in the flesh. He is the Son of God. And He died for me to redeem me from sin, sickness, and disease. I am free because Jesus came to this earth and died on the Cross for me. Thank You, Jesus!_
