FIRMNESS IN TRUTH
Christ Jesus built his career on the rock of Christ, Truth. In his every thought and act he acknowledged the guiding power of God, divine Principle. Because he never swerved from the unchanging and unerring law of God, he demonstrated dominion over every material obstacle. He declared that he who follows faithfully in his footsteps will be like a man who built his house on a rock—safe from all the clamoring beliefs of mortality.
Our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, consistently followed in the footsteps of Jesus. From the moment of her discovery of Christian Science she never swerved from the straight and narrow pathway of Truth. And she gives us this helpful instruction (Retrospection and Introspection,p. 87): "Genuine Christian Scientists are, or should be, the most systematic and law-abiding people on earth, because their religion demands implicit adherence to fixed rules, in the orderly demonstration thereof." And among these rules she includes healing the sick, raising the dead, and preaching the gospel of Christian Science.
In the demonstration of Christian Science, human will has no place, for it is the opposite of the divine will, which alone governs man correctly. Throughout his career as a Christian, the Apostle Paul demonstrated in danger and in persecution the authority of the divine will over the human. On one occasion when he was being taken prisoner to Rome, the master of the ship and those who had sailed the seas predicted good weather. But Paul, whose trust always rested in God's unerring direction, advised them not to start on the journey. His protests were ignored, and as a result the ship ran into a severe storm, and later was wrecked. But throughout the experience it was Paul who, steadfastly relying on divine guidance, led the way to deliverance for all who were aboard the ship.
