Fruitage Through Dedication to God

The life of Christ Jesus is a perfect example of a dedicated mission. With unswerving loyalty and a complete lack of self-love, self-will, and self-justification he taught man's unity with the Father. The fruitage that followed the unsurpassed dedication of one individual is still with us today, almost two thousand years later, as seen in all phases of Christianity, especially in the banner of healing held high in the Churches of Christ, Scientist, in the world.

Mrs. Eddy's life was also a miracle of dedication to the purpose of spiritually understanding the Word of God and following the Christ. She labored persistently, consistently, and patiently to maintain the purity of thought necessary to receive and give out the seed of Truth. Her unselfishness, fidelity, and love enabled her to reveal to the world the blessings that would follow dedication to His law.

If this is the abundant fruitage of dedicated labor, how can we work to bring about such glorious results? Where do we work, when do we work, and how can we do better work so as to have more fruitage?
