Fidelity and Faith

To the student of Christian Science whose healing may seem to be delayed, the incident recorded in Luke, thirteenth chapter, is pregnant with hope and assurance. The incident deals with the case of a woman who had suffered for eighteen years from what to-day might be called a chronic form of rheumatism. She "was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself."

It is interesting to note that the synagogue was a place in which the people met on the Sabbath day for prayer and for the reading of the law and the prophets, and that, although this woman was a cripple, she was not prevented from attending. Probably it was her wont to go there regularly to hear the Word of God. Her presence certainly indicated the desire to know more of Him. And would she not there hear the words read from the book of Isaiah, "Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price"?
