Fidelity, the Passport to Spiritual Power

One of the most challenging and elucidating statements pertaining to spiritual power is to be found on page 270 of "Miscellaneous Writings" by Mary Baker Eddy. In speaking of the necessity of following Christ Jesus, she says, "Fidelity to his precepts and practice is the only passport to his power." Here is a statement that should be provocative of serious thought on the part of every student of Christian Science.

Through her spiritual vision and understanding of Truth, our beloved Leader achieved fidelity to good, and by this means she healed all manner of sin and disease. Unquestionably, the fullness of her spiritual revelation would have been lost to the world had it not been for her selfless labor for mankind. For even as our Master labored to imbue his disciples with the spirit of his teaching, so through her writings, her precepts and example, Mrs. Eddy guided mankind in the Christly way of living and thinking.
