As we study Christian Science and begin to understand that the Christ—the true idea and spirit of God that motivated Jesus—is present with each one of us today, our needs change. We begin to see and feel that there is more to being Christlike than selfless love alone or the desire to be good. Jesus' command, "Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give," Matt. 10:8; is addressed to each of us. All of Jesus' teachings, including his command to heal, are relevant and practical today. When this is acknowledged, we begin to see there is much more to prayer, to church, to living, than we had previously believed.
To daily live the truth as Christ Jesus taught it is quite a challenge. Mrs. Eddy tells us: "Few understand or adhere to Jesus' divine precepts for living and healing. Why? Because his precepts require the disciple to cut off the right hand and pluck out the right eye,—that is, to set aside even the most cherished beliefs and practices, to leave all for Christ."
