Waiting Patiently on God

THROUGHOUT past centuries, patient and loving followers of Truth have accounted it a privilege to serve God amid whatever trials and persecutions have seemed to come to them, earnestly seeking divine guidance, willingly paying what might be required of them for the sake of good, and sometimes forfeiting even what seemed to be life itself for the cause of righteousness. Through the teachings of such generous and patient workers, multitudes have advanced from the bondage of pagan idolatry, overstepped the threshold of ritualistic worship, turned from the false beliefs of so-called science, theology, and medicine, and gained a stronger faith in God.

We need not be reminded that these diligent seekers after Truth devoted their lives to the development of a practical religion. Did they patiently sit by, waiting for God to bring something to them? They did not. They served God according to their highest sense of right, and worked for the good of humanity.

Following many endeavors by these earnest religious leaders came Mary Baker Eddy, who, through her revelation and her spiritual living, was able to give to the world a religion destined to elucidate and perpetuate the works and teachings of Christ Jesus. Our Leader labored unselfishly in giving to her followers her divinely inspired works, thus placing Christianity on a demonstrable basis.
