Go and Tell Thy Friends

In the fifth chapter of Mark's gospel we read the account of Jesus' casting the devils out of one who had come to him for help. We also read that the people, not understanding the work that had been done, and being filled with fear, asked him to depart from their country. As Jesus was leaving, the one who had been healed begged that he might be allowed to accompany him. Jesus, however, realizing the need of the people at that place, told him, "Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee." The man obeyed the divine command; and we read that he "began to publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus had done for him: and all men did marvel."

Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science and the author of its textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," not only has given us a similar command, but has provided various channels which we may use in being obedient to this requirement to tell our friends what "great things" the Lord hath done for us. In every issue of The Christian Science Journal, the Christian Science Sentinel, Le Héraut, and Der Herold, we find the testimonies of those who have been obedient and are telling their friends how good God has been to them.
