Obedience

Well may the sons of men listen, today as of yore, to God's promise, voiced through the prophet Isaiah: "Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land."

When one stands guard at the door of one's thought, even for an hour, one realizes how difficult it is not to become mesmerized by the sense of personality, materiality, and corporeality; and one sees how his thoughts may seem "red like crimson," through denial of the Christ. Only through a clear understanding of Christ, "the divine manifestation of God, which comes to the flesh to destroy incarnate error," as Mrs. Eddy states in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 583), can sins be eradicated—sins of omission and commission.
