Refuse Evil, Choose Good

The promise of the coming of the Messiah stirred the expectancy of those who lived in anticipation of it, even before Christ Jesus appeared. And now for nearly two thousand years the life of Jesus has impelled millions to view their existence, their responsibilities, their possibilities in a new and ennobling light.

There are many facets to the Master's life, each of which moves men to higher aspirations and achievements. Even a glimpse of what Jesus accomplished in presenting Christ, the true idea of God, sets men to work emulating him in some degree. Yet no single concept of who the Master was or what he did, regardless of how satisfying it may be, should be allowed to obscure an ever-expanding appreciation of what his coming means to humanity. His life, more than any other in history, has impelled a turning from a material sense of existence to a spiritual sense—from what the material senses behold to a spiritual interpretation of all things.
