Cause for Rejoicing

Many are the passages in the Scriptures that bid us rejoice for the goodness and bounty of God; and the student of Christian Science knows that the habitual practice of gratitude and rejoicing for the many manifestations of the Father's love is most helpful in working out the problems that present themselves to him for solution. Every healing of sickness, disease, lack, limitation, or sin, however small it may seem to be, is proof of the truth and infallibility of this Science. It proves that the divine power that was present to heal in Jesus' day, namely, the ever living and ever active Christ, Truth, is present here and now to save mankind from the bondage of materiality, of self and sense.

To realize, even though faintly, this wonderful truth, to know of a certainty that God's presence, power, and tender, compassionate love are present at all times and under all circumstances, is to fill our hearts with peace, confidence, and joy. It was this sublime confidence that enabled Paul to declare, "Neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God," and the Psalmist to sing with assurance, "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me."
