"The spiritual power of a scientific, right thought"

On page 37 of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mary Baker Eddy has written, "It is possible,—yea, it is the duty and privilege of every child, man, and woman,—to follow in some degree the example of the Master by the demonstration of Truth and Life, of health and holiness."

Through consecrated endeavor, students of Christian Science are proving in daily experience the healing power of Truth. They rejoice in the progress already made, and are grateful for the good they have been privileged to do. But there is ever in their hearts the prayerful desire to be more actively engaged in loving service for God and man. To these faithful ones, therefore, the foregoing statement of their Leader comes as a clarion call to greater achievement.

As one goes forward, striving earnestly to be about the Father's business, he is strengthened and encouraged by Jesus' words, "The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise." Knowing that man's only work is to reflect God, the student of Christian Science seeks through consecrated study of the Bible and the Christian Science textbook to bring "into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ." Thus he is continually inspired and spiritually equipped to apply and prove the truths of Christian Science.
