Servants of God

The thought of man as a servant of God has doubtless opened the way to many healings in Christian Science. Many a Christian Science demonstration is accompanied by that sense of humility and obedience which indicates the clear recognition of man as a servant, and, above all, as God's servant. Certain it is that those who have proved of greatest service to mankind are those who have seen themselves most clearly as servants of God.

Abraham, Moses, Isaac, Jacob, Paul are a few of the many whose lives were filled with good works as a result of their clear perception of themselves as servants of God. That the works of Jesus outshone all others was the natural outcome of his more consecrated allegiance to the Father. With the kingdoms of the world within his grasp, with a greater temptation to self-glorification facing him than ever confronted another, he was able to remind himself, "Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve." And then, it will be remembered, the devil left him and "angels came and ministered unto him."
