Obedience to God

Obedience to God has not yet been accepted by all men as the highest of privileges. Comparatively few yet realize that such obedience is the open door to all that is rich and desirable, to all that is pure and holy, to all that results in greatest and incomparable blessing. Neither does mankind yet realize that this obedience must be without taint of personal desire, if it is to be acceptable to God. It must also be quick and intelligent, if right results are readily to accrue.

Now Christian Science reveals the absolute truth that man as the image and likeness of God has no power to express less than perfect obedience to his Maker. Since he is the complete and perfect reflection of God, he can know no will or control except that which is in and of divine Mind. Mortals, however, have the task of learning to obey God, divine Principle, of bringing every thought into subjection to Truth and Love, before the spontaneous reflection of good can be realized. They therefore must avail themselves of all the helps divine Mind has provided, that they may learn to understand the exact nature of true obedience and the way in which to gain dominion over the beliefs of the so-called human will.
