Letting Our Light Shine

Jesus said, "Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature,"  Mark 16:15 ; and again, "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."  Matt. 5:16 ; Obedience to the latter counsel is an effectual way of carrying out the former.

The desire of every dedicated Christian Scientist is to let his light shine before men by living an exemplary life, keeping the commandments, doing good to his fellowmen, and otherwise reflecting the Godlike qualities that animate him. But, more important still, he goes out into the byways, seeking those who are ready to learn more of the Christ, Truth, that redeems the world. He welcomes questions about his religion. He does not draw back, lacking courage, doubting his capacity to answer these queries satisfyingly. He realizes that at first the disciples of Jesus could not answer all the questions put to them, nor heal all the diseases that were presented to them, but they did not hold back on that account.
