"Be ye stedfast"

In I Corinthians we read, "Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, immoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord." What comfort, encouragement, and strength these words offer to those who faithfully strive to follow the Christ! In time of strain and the pressure of world tension, made apparent in so many ways, when mortal sense would argue that evil is prospering and good overshadowed, how inspiring and renewing to read again this assurance that our "labour is not in vain" when we are working with God, even though the path for the moment may seem dark!

Christian Scientists have need now, perhaps more than ever before, to stand fast in the truth they have learned and proved through the understanding of the Scriptures gained from the study of Christian Science. Christian Scientists need to stand firm, not only for their own peace and strength, but also for the sake of a world sorely needing their steadfast, unmovable realization that God governs; that His spiritual creation alone is real; that all which opposes this divine reality, however powerful and aggressive it may seem to be, is but a mistaken belief, an illusion, which must at length disappear before the revelation of Truth.
