SERVING GOD

Whatever one does, wherever one is, there is always the opportunity to express God, and that is one's reason for being. Expressing God is doing God's will and brings infinite blessings. The highest service to God is knowing and demonstrating His omnipotence, omniscience, and omnipresence. The highest service to mankind is seeing one's fellow man as actually God's own image and likeness and following in the footsteps of Jesus in daily living.

In an article entitled "Choose ye" in "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany" Mary Baker Eddy writes (p. 3): "The divine might of Truth demands well-doing in order to demonstrate truth, and this not alone in accord with human desire but with spiritual power. St. John writes: 'Blessed are they that do His commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.' The sear leaves of faith without works, scattered abroad in Zion's waste places, appeal to reformers, 'Show me thy faith by thy works.'"
