The Power Of God
A friend asked 'Abdu'l-Baha how far the individual could attain to that
Christ consciousness in himself of which St. Paul speaks as our hope of
'Abdu'l-Baha turned with a look of great joy and said with an impressive
gesture: The bounty and power of God is limitless for each human soul.
Consider what was the quickening power of the Christ when He was on earth.
Look at His disciples! They were poor and uncultured men. Out of the rough
fisherman He made the great Peter, and out of the poor village girl of
Magdala He made one who is a power in all the world today. Many queens
have reigned who are remembered by their dates in history, and nothing
more is known of them. But Mary the Magdalene is greater than them all. It
was she whose love strengthened the disciples when their faith was
failing. What she did for the world cannot be measured. See what a divine
power was enkindled in her by the power of God!
