Overcoming by Yielding to Truth

The Christian Scientist finds that the great obstacle to spiritual progress is his mistaken sense of self. The mortal or personal sense of self, together with the belief in material laws, permeates the world's thinking. So, then, each time one overcomes some phase of mortal mind or self-will in himself, he has to that extent helped to overcome it for the world.

The blessed Way-shower encourages our effort to overcome when he says, "In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." And Mrs. Eddy writes in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 10), "Christian Science reveals a necessity for overcoming the world, the flesh, and evil, and thus destroying all error."
