Working for the Cause

One of the characteristics of a Christian Science church member, which often attracts the attention of the outsider, is his zeal and quiet enthusiasm. There are no spectacular features in our church life, no artificial attractions, no display, no manufactured enthusiasm.

To grow toward the divine Mind, or God, to reflect Him, to be governed only by Him, to express His infinite modes, to succeed only because it is right to be like God, who is the very Principle of rightness,—this is the daily work of the Christian Scientist. This naturally works itself out in the matter of building up our Cause. We love Christian Science and desire above everything else to see it grow and prosper. We want to work for it, we want to participate in its beneficent practice, we want to display our loyalty and devotion by doing something. This earnestness in behalf of our Cause is so marked and so universal that others quickly notice it, and it has come to be recognized as one of the distinguishing features of the Christian Science Church.
