"Come and dine"

When Jesus called to his truant disciples who had gone back to their nets, "Come and dine," this invitation held more than the promise of material food. "When they had dined," we read, Christ Jesus three times required Peter to reply to his question, "Lovest thou me?" Christian Science is echoing this searching query, and it is inevitable that resistless Love, conquering material sense, should sooner or later call forth in every human heart the right answer.

One is readier to look into the teachings of Christian Science when the ashes of his hopes lie all about him. Of the matter-worshiper it is written in Job, "His strength shall be hunger-bitten." Many are hungry for immutable strength, health, wisdom, joy, and they are finding that Christian Science tells them plainly where and how these may be found and appropriated. The bread of Life, the abundant, satisfying truth of spiritual being, calls to the sick, to the darkened, and to the disheartened, "Come and dine."
