Self-reliant Trustworthiness

It is related that on a certain occasion when Christ Jesus was hard pressed by those who misunderstood his teaching and were about to cast him headlong from the brow of a hill, "he passing through the midst of them went his way." This incident is of great illustrative value to the understanding Christian Scientist. Jesus relied so implicitly on divine Love's constant presence, guidance, and protection that fear failed to touch him; and because of this he was shielded and directed by divine Principle.

Whether at the war front or on the home front, the student of Christian Science knows that as he holds steadfastly to the truth of being and relies on the ever-present guidance and protection of his God, threatened danger and difficult situations have no power over him. Understanding divine Love and how to work out his salvation through unwavering fidelity to Truth and unyielding firmness in obedience to divine Principle, he is found to be spiritually self-reliant and trustworthy. Hence his sure deliverance.
