"Come and see"

To the Christian Scientist, the Bible becomes a limitless storehouse from which to draw fresh inspiration and enlightenment. The casual reader may find in Scriptural narrative only the record of facts, whereas the spiritualized thought finds also the Christianly metaphysical meaning of the inspired passage.

In the first chapter of John's gospel we read that two disciples of John the Baptist followed Jesus and inquired of him, "Where dwellest thou?" It is evident that Jesus did not intend to satisfy mere human curiosity as to his material abode; but, recognizing in the two disciples earnest seekers of Truth who would learn of his doctrine, he extended to them the cordial invitation to "come and see" a mental state wherein were being manifested the works of God. That Jesus read the thought of the two men aright is obvious from the fact that some hours later one of the two, Andrew by name, declared to his brother Simon, "We have found the Messias."
