Seeking God

MANY are the exhortations in the Scriptures to seek God; and to those who obey, the reward has ever been immeasurable. Throughout the Bible we find convincing proof of this glorious fact; and in the light of Christian Science with which we now read these sacred pages, we know that those whom disaster appeared to overtake in their search for and demonstration of Truth, nevertheless triumphed gloriously. Our Master's life and works stand forever an unparalleled example of absolute trust in God, and of complete victory over every limitation of material sense, even to the overcoming of death and the grave—proving for all time the omnipotence and omnipresence of divine Life and Truth and Love.

In these days we have before us another example of this same trust in God and its certain recompense, in the accomplishment of our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, and the author of its textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," who has proved the inspiring Bible promise,—so beautifully rendered in the much loved solo from Mendelssohn's oratorio "Elijah,"—"If with all your hearts ye truly seek me, ye shall ever surely find me," to be the veritable assurance of our Father-Mother God, who is the same yesterday, to-day, and forever. To seek God, then, is to find Him; and to find Him is to find also our real selfhood—the perfect, spiritual man of His creating. Could we wish for greater reward or seek a higher goal? Assuredly not; for as Mrs. Eddy writes in "Retrospection and Introspection" (p. 70), "The scientific ultimate of this God-idea must be, will be, forever individual, incorporeal, and infinite, even the reflection, 'image and likeness,' of the infinite God."
