Trusting God

Christian Science particularly emphasizes the need to trust God, not blindly and ignorantly, but through understanding Him. Trust—that is, faith so established—is both scientific and permanent. To know God, then, is the Christian's first necessity. Eliphaz the Temanite admonished Job, "Acquaint now thyself with him [God], and be at peace." Jeremiah was so sure of mortals' need to know God that he recorded this message from the Lord: "They shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the Lord." Hosea, likewise, recognized mankind's necessity to know God, and expressed it in emphatic language.

Christ Jesus was so assured that salvation for mankind rests upon knowledge of God that he uttered words dearly cherished by Christians throughout the centuries: "And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent." To the Prophet of Nazareth there was apparent both the possibility of knowing God and the necessity of understanding Him and His universe in order to gain eternal life.
