Promises that Attract

A NOTED lawyer who introduced a Christian Science lecturer nearly a quarter of a century ago is reported as having said at that time, "I know very little about Christian Science, but I have been attracted towards it by reason of its many promises. If there is to be a fruition of these promises, if they are possible of fulfillment, then I am persuaded that the human race is at the dawn of its deliverance from evil."

Jesus came to earth in the "fulness of the time," to establish a new order of things: he came preaching the gospel of Love to the poor, and healing Sickness and disease. And he promised that these healing works would be continued by his true followers, who understood the source of his power to be his father; for Jesus said, "He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also." Jesus' compassionate love was always expressed in behalf of the poor and afflicted. He said, "They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick." The human heart today, as in the time when the Master was on earth, is crying out for rest, for deliverance from the bondage of material beliefs—sin, sickness, and sorrow.
