Vision and Work

When Christian Science comes into one's life and its wonderful healing is experienced, the human heart is apt to remember the mount of transfiguration, where holy ones were seen and conversed with, and garments shone "exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them." In the Scriptural account of the experience of Jesus and the chosen disciples on the mount of revelation, we read that the Master went down from this elevation to meet the sick and dusty multitude, to hear and help to overcome their complaints, to heal their diseases and their sorrows. We do not read that this was considered a hardship; yet is it not true that many who have been healed and uplifted by Christian Science, when confronted by the grind and fret of human existence, would fain wish to stay on the mountain top where it was exalted, pure, and altogether beautiful? There is a beauty, however, which exceeds mere contemplation or even rapt joyousness. It is the beauty of loving service. When we commence to look for and to see that wonderful beauty, then such service ceases to be harsh or grinding. A verse runs:—
