Our Great Exemplar

Referring to the master Christian, Christ Jesus, Mrs. Eddy states (Rudimental Divine Science, p. 3), "His example is, to Christian Scientists, what the models of the masters in music and painting are to artists." He who seeks the light of Truth is wise in observing and emulating the example of its greatest demonstrator, Christ Jesus.

In searching for words to portray the Master's character and pay tribute to his unparalleled goodness, one finds human language unsatisfactory and inadequate. The same is true when one attempts to express heartfelt love and gratitude for Jesus. Suffice it to say, then, that of all the characters of history, true Christians readily yield to Christ Jesus the deepest reverence and highest honor. He reigns in their hearts as the Exemplar by whose teaching and practice they justify their spiritual expectations and judge their thoughts and actions.
