SIGNING OUR NAMES
"I Will praise thee, O Lord, with my whole heart.... I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name, O thou most High." So sang the Psalmist (Ps. 9:1,2).
This also is the song of the Christian Scientist. How precious to the heart of the Christian Scientist is God's name, His nature and qualities! The consecrated student of Christian Science looks forward to that time when he will have so assimilated His name that he may feel sufficiently prepared to sign the church register and assume the new name, Christian Scientist.
To be a Christian Scientist is indeed a great privilege and responsibility. This means to so live the life of Christliness that others may see our good works and be drawn Godward. This step means that we are willing to live according to the laws that Christian Science reveals; that we are willing to mold our lives to conform with the name we have now outwardly assumed. It means that we shall endeavor with our whole heart to love God supremely and our neighbor as ourselves. It means that we shall have no other gods and accept no other power than the one God, who is infinite power.
