Working for God

Every Christian Scientist knows what it is to have a Bible verse, a line from one of the hymns, or a passage from one of Mrs. Eddy's writings come to him over and over, just seeming to sing itself into the thought, even when the person is busy with other things. As these messages come from Truth and Love, and we welcome them, the word angel comes to us in connection therewith; for we know they are God's thoughts passing to us through these channels of inspiration.

To one student this better understanding of the word angel, gained through the study of Christian Science, has been of no small value; for before, angels had been simply flying feathered creatures. When a child, and later, she would as soon have seen a grizzly bear approaching as a winged angel, and there was no desire to see one either coming to her or passing to anyone else. Now, because of the right concept held, she prays daily that angels, which are defined on page 581 of Science and Health as "God's thoughts passing to man; spiritual intuitions, pure and perfect," may constantly dwell with her. One evening at a testimony meeting a woman gave an experience, telling of protection coming to her through a certain verse of Scripture. She lived out in the country, and had gone into town to do some shopping one day. In the midst of her shopping the first verse of the ninety-first psalm came to her distinctly. She did not give it any special attention, but it came again, and that time she paused and thought, "Why, that is from the ninety-first psalm and stands for protection." Affirming her right as God's child to that protection, no more thought was given the incident, until on arriving home she found in the door a skeleton key which had broken off.
