Joy in the Healing Work

In the thirty-fifth chapter of Isaiah these words occur: "And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away." In beautiful language they express the fact that spiritual-mindedness is heir to joy and gladness.

Material-mindedness, thought that is unspiritual, can never result in happiness and joy. On the contrary, its inevitable consequents are sorrow, disappointment, sickness, and ultimately death. Thought that dwells on matter as real, that believes matter to be causative and that life and intelligence abide in it and are dependent upon it, can never rise above "sorrow and sighing" and enter into the "everlasting joy" of spiritual living. Well it is for men when they see this and seek to turn their thoughts Spiritward, even to the understanding of God which Christian Science gives.
