"Called unto liberty"

THE call of the centuries is for human freedom. Yet this is only a faint echo of the call, heralded from heaven, for mankind to learn of, to welcome, and to utilize spiritual liberty. The great need is to know what liberty really is, and Christian Scientists have cause for humble rejoicing that Jesus' example has been set before them as the perfect illustration.

What gave Jesus his marvelous freedom and dominion? Not social prominence, for he was trained as a carpenter. Not the power of money, for he was not acquisitive. Not the influence of position, for he had no standing with the dominant class. Not a tolerant government, for tyranny was the order of his day. Plainly, it was his Christly understanding of man's relationship to God, Truth, shown forth in a career abounding in selfless service, which enabled him to walk at liberty.
