Obedience to Law Is Liberty

Doing what is right, true, and good, complying with the divine law, is obedience. Only through strict obedience to the rules of mathematics can one successfully work out a mathematical problem. The mathematician is obedient to the law of mathematics. Just as the application of mathematical truth corrects an error in computation, so the application of divine Truth corrects false mortal beliefs—sin, sickness, disease, unemployment, poverty, grief, death. We are freed from these as we gain the true understanding of God and man. Mary Baker Eddy writes in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 494), "Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need." As we are obedient to divine law, we find this promise fulfilled.

To see clearly the allness of God, the infinity of good, and the consequent unreality of evil leads to success in healing. Our beloved Leader, through her writings, has given us the rules for working out successfully any problem that may be presented to us. But if we are seeking the benefit of Christian Science, we must be obedient to her inspired directions.
