Vigilance

Vigilance to the Christian Scientistt does not indicate the menace of danger, but consciousness of safety. He knows that in spiritual alertness to the law of divine protection he can face any conspiracy of evil forces arrayed against him, with quiet confidence.

"Could ye not watch with me one hour?" Jesus asked his disciples, and added, "Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation." Entering into temptation is an open door to danger—it is acceptance of the belief that outside of spiritual knowing, which relies wholly upon Mind for wisdom and direction, there is immunity from evil. Entering into temptation is believing that there is ever a time in human experience when men can neglect their defenses or relax their vigilance.
