"This man hath done nothing amiss"

What an assurance that his earthly mission had been fulfilled must have come to our Master when he heard the thief on the cross beside his own declare of him, "This man hath done nothing amiss"! And in the ordeal which the repentant thief was suffering, what hope of new life and joy must have been his when, in response to his petition, "Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom," he received the heartening promise of our Lord, "To day shalt thou be with me in paradise"! Thus the final act of Christ Jesus as he faced the portals of the grave was healing. Thereafter, that heavenly task was entrusted to his followers. And the Christian Scientist is turning obediently to the Bible, together with "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" and other works by his beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, in order to learn how, through overcoming error, to follow in the Master's footsteps.

The Bible abounds with assurances of comfort to those who seem to be in the depths of affliction, and to those earnest seekers after righteousness who, like Job, may believe themselves at the end of their tether, as the saying is. Could there be greater comfort than the knowledge that each one, whatever the mortal seeming, is the child of God, and that the spiritual identity of each one knows and does nothing amiss? The revelation of Christian Science enables the most discouraged invalid and sinner to learn this glorious truth, and shows him how to avail himself of the Scriptural affirmation of the perfection of man and of the tender promises to repentant thought.
