"By their fruits"

The practical ability to prove or demonstrate the sayings of Christ Jesus is expected of all who take up the study and work of Christian Science. To demonstrate the truth of being was the life-work of our Master; and it should be said of his followers that they are striving to show by their lives that they are "joint-heirs with Christ." Jesus said, "By their fruits ye shall know them;" and the overcoming of sin, sickness, and other discordant conditions in everyday life, through the realization of man's sonship with God, should be the goal before all.

Every argument of error can be met and overcome by Truth, and we should strive for prompt demonstration over all error. The hours spent in prayer, the unceasing desire to know and do the will of God, enable one to think rightly in the midst of seeming trials. And when a sense of lack or of disease is destroyed by applying the truth, then it is readily seen that God is, indeed, "a very present help," always near to bless and heal. On page 251 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mrs. Eddy writes, "The divine Mind makes perfect, acts upon the so-called human mind through truth, leads the human mind to relinquish all error, to find the divine Mind to be the only Mind, and the healer of sin, disease, death." Striving to enter in, though the way be straight and narrow, we may find the solution to every problem.
