A Closer Walk with God

Christ Jesus knew that the only way in which he could bring the kingdom of God to earth was by helping men to know and to love God. He proved the power of God, Life, to heal and bless. He walked closely with God. His was the highway of Love. As others turn from the by-ways of error, ill-health, sin, and lack, and follow the signposts erected by the Way-shower, they find the higher road of spiritual understanding, where they may have a closer walk with God.

Mary Baker Eddy has written in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 3), "To understand God is the work of eternity, and demands absolute consecration of thought, energy, and desire." He who would walk with God must put the things of God first; he must consecrate his endeavors to the Father's business. No matter what difficulties may seem to arise, the nature of the goal and the steps to be taken in reaching it should remain paramount in thought. At every step in our closer walk with God we discern more clearly our sonship with our Father-Mother God, divine Love.
