A Dictionary gives the root meaning of loyal as "law," and a loyal person as one who is "faithful to law." Every earnest Christian Scientist is putting the questions to himself: Am I loyal? Am I faithful to God's law? Am I striving to be more loyal by increasing my spiritual understanding through constant study of Christian Science, which our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, defines in "Rudimental Divine Science" (p. 1) as "the law of God, the law of good, interpreting and demonstrating the divine Principle and rule of universal harmony"?

We are loyal in proportion as we realize that since God is Mind, we can in reality have no intelligence apart from this one and only Mind. We possess the qualities and attributes of God by reflecting them. Divine Mind has established this law of individual reflection. And we are faithful to this law by realizing our inability to do anything as of ourselves, but that, as Paul says in his epistle to the Philippians, we "can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth."
