Thine Own House

It is impossible to measure the good that will be unfolded to mankind when the realization of the importance of every word which Jesus spoke, dawns upon human consciousness. Each phrase which this master Metaphysician formulated, has a telling significance; and if we would but let his words challenge our thinking instead of idly listening to them, his message would unfold with ever-increasing forcefulness.

The Gospel of Luke (5:18-26) relates the healing of the man stricken with palsy. The account contains many interesting points for the student of Christian Science to ponder, but Jesus' final instructions to the one who had fallen a prey to this belief of impotency are challenging and of vital import to us all. The man's touching willingness to obey the Master's command, "Arise, and take up thy couch, and go into thine house," without argument or resistance, was of course the beginning of his healing, just as our willingness to obey God today is the beginning of all our healings.
