In His Presence

What an assurance of the success of all his endeavors it must have been to Moses when God said to him, "My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest"! Surely after this Moses could tread his pathway with confidence in his ability to succeed in his undertakings, having the knowledge that he had the promise of God that he should continue in His presence.

We are all constantly in God's presence when we are thinking good thoughts and doing acts of kindness; in other words, when we are rendering service to our fellow-men. This is His service, a service in which the reflection of Love is paramount. In the textbook of Christian Science, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, we find this sentence (p. 518): "Love giveth to the least spiritual idea might, immortality, and goodness, which shine through all as the blossom shines through the bud." Surely, as we follow the teachings of Christian Science, we can express something of this Love. What a high duty we have before us when we realize that we, as Christian Scientists, are God's representatives, and that we must manifest Him in all our daily activities!
