"Growth in the knowledge of Truth"

The student who is questioning his lack of progress in the understanding of Christian Science may well heed the words of the Apostle Peter (l Pet. 2:2). "As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby." Is the student willing to know more of God. Truth? Does he desire this knowledge above all else? Our beloved Leader. Mary Baker Eddy, assures him in "Retrospection and Introspection" (p. 86). "A student desiring growth in the knowledge of Truth, can and will obtain it by taking up his cross and following Truth." The student has but to follow Truth: then his "growth in the knowledge of Truth" is assured.

To be an obedient follower the Christian Scientist must work, watch, and pray. He will pray for obedience. He will work consistently and conscientiously to be led by Truth. He will watch that his application of each new unfolding thought is attended by a more loving consideration of others in daily living, by intelligent activity, and by an alertness to righteous thinking. "For." we read in Isaiah (28:10). "precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept: line upon line, line upon line: here a little, and there a little."
