The single purpose that animated the Discoverer of Christian Science was to help all men find man's God-given dominion over sin, disease, and death, and to facilitate this accomplishment. Mary Baker Eddy saw and proved the present-day potency of the spiritual truths of being taught by Christ Jesus. Each admonition and command directed by her to her followers is an essential aid to help them free themselves from the limitations and enslavements of materiality, and to gain the health, happiness, and satisfying sense of being which come only from that demonstrable understanding of God possessed by the Master.
One's human experience is divided up into days, and almost everyone accepts as necessary certain daily duties pertaining to his person and appearance, indicative of his desire to express cleanliness, neatness, and well-ordered being. A part of each day is also given over to providing the body with food. Besides, each individual has, according to his interests, many other daily duties.
When one becomes aware that what contributes most to the health, happiness, and success of himself and those about him is the gaining of an ever-clearer understanding of God, and of man as God's expression, he realizes the necessity for daily effort on his part to gain this understanding. Daily study of the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," becomes an indispensable part of his life. Not laboriously but joyously he reads, studies, and assimilates in his thought the Word of God found in the weekly Lesson-Sermon. The Word is his bread of Life, essential to his spiritual growth and progress.
