True Accomplishment

Mankind suffers much from fear of failure,—failure of health, of business, of security, of life, of peace, of happiness,—forgetting, apparently, that Christ Jesus demonstrated conclusively the certainty of success in any right undertaking.

While our Saviour's teachings were accepted, and for approximately three hundred years after the close of his earthly career were practically applied by many, the ability to emulate his authority over material conditions and circumstances seemed to become obscured or lost in ritualism and creed.

The Master, who proved the dominion of good in human experience, disclaimed any personal aggrandizement. There is no equivocation in the statements, "The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do," and, "I can of mine own self do nothing;" nor is there any ambiguity in the wonderful promise, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also."
