"And they followed him"

In the twentieth chapter of Matthew, it is related that two blind men received their sight through the ministrations of Christ Jesus. This was nothing unusual in the daily life of the Son of man. His presence had brought healing to multitudes in every city and town where he sojourned. The unusual part of the episode is contained at the end of the thirty-fourth verse, which reads, "So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes: and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed him."

How many of those receiving the precious gift of health from the Master are recorded as following him? How many today, through the utilization of the Christ-principle, as revealed in Christian Science, follow the Christ, Truth, in humility and gratitude? It is one thing to be healed of a distressing condition by the consecrated work of a Christian Science practitioner, and quite another to continue one's progress through study and through the denial of material selfhood until the healing power is fully understood and spiritual being is revealed.
