The One, Ever-adequate Way

If one has accomplished a measure of demonstration in Christian Science, whether in the handling of an individual case of sickness or other distress, or in his experience as a whole, and has seemed unable to go farther, what is he to do? Of what is his further progress to consist? And how is he to achieve it? For that the way is always available for needed progress, Christian Science leaves no doubt.

A clue to the answers to these questions is assuredly given in the response of Christ Jesus to those of the multitude who asked him what they should do that they "might work the works of God." "This," he said, "is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent." The requirement, he was plainly saying, was that they should grasp, or grasp more fully, the true idea of being, which he was representing to them. And that this one method is sufficient for even the highest demonstration, he showed later in a prayer in the presence of the twelve. "This is life eternal," he said, "that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent."
