EMERGENCE INTO LIGHT

One morning, as a Christian Scientist sat quietly praying for spiritual enlightenment, he received the following angel message: "Seek a clearer understanding of God. If you understand God aright, you will know man aright. And if you understand man aright, you will experience progress in your daily living and relationship with others." Then this student turned to the several definitions of God in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy and pondered them with the prayerful desire truly to understand God and His nature. Elementary, you might say. Yes, but basic and enlightening when carried on in sincerity and honesty of purpose. And emergence into light came!

Shortly thereafter the Scientist spoke to a friend who asked him for help in solving a business and home problem. He told her to seek a clearer understanding of God by studying the definitions given by our Leader. Several weeks later she admitted to her friend that she had expected him to speak some wonderful words of truth which would immediately dispel the problem. Instead, she had been disappointed when he simply told her to study the definitions of God which she had memorized years before.
