The Master's Example

To emulate the works of the master Christian, Jesus of Nazareth, is the constant endeavor of every loyal Christian Scientist. The healing of the sick by spiritual means alone had for centuries remained a mystery, and men had accepted the miracles accomplished by Christ Jesus as possible only in that age and by a few. But what said the Master? Even this: "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father." The works of healing were accomplished for about three centuries after Jesus passed from human sight; and then materiality crept in, with the result that the promises the Master gave were forgotten and the healing power that he and his disciples demonstrated was temporarily lost.

The spark of true spirituality could not be quenched, however, and it glowed steadily, though dimly, through the intervening centuries. It remained to be fanned into a bright, steady flame by one who, through a life of religious devotion and an overwhelming desire to help mankind, was found pure enough to receive a further revelation of Truth.
