The Highway of Our God

The words and works of Christ Jesus should do more than reassure humanity, for when rightly considered they establish an abiding confidence in the might of spiritual law. Faith leads to understanding, revealing God as Mind, the infinite intelligence governing the universe and man. Mary Baker Eddy strongly emphasizes the importance of the teachings and demonstrations of the Master where she says in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 270), "Fidelity to his precepts and practice is the only passport to his power." Only as mortals accept the spiritual sense of being do they lay claim to their divine sonship; and only as they live according to this higher understanding do they lay hold of their God-given birthright of freedom.

Certain standards are accounted necessary to human happiness, to moral and spiritual development. However, one may ask how the right way of life is to be found when one has seemed bound by heredity, poverty, sin, or sickness. For more than sixty years Christian Science has been lifting an ever-increasing number of people out of such bondage and revealing to them the true liberty of the children of God.

Daniel, in his prayer and confession, said, "O Lord, righteousness belongeth unto thee, but unto us confusion of faces." He attributed this confused sense of things to the sins of the people, disregard for God as well as disobedience to His laws. Humbling himself, and praying for deliverance and for the restoration of Jerusalem, he saw a vision and heard a voice saying, "Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words." Each individual must seek and find his Father-Mother, God, before the fears and discords which seem so much a part of his human existence can ever be silenced. Then will he hear the voice of Truth assuring him that he has found the true highway of Life.
