The Power of Christian Science - Do We Recognize It?

How aware are we of the tremendous spiritual power available to us in the Science of Christ, Truth?

In Jesus' day a Roman centurion recognized the authority of Truth. He came to Jesus beseeching him to heal his servant, who was very ill with the palsy. When Christ Jesus offered to come and heal him, the centurion answered, "Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed." He went on to explain that he also was a man under authority: "And I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it." Jesus marveled at this and said to his listeners, "Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel." And to the centurion he said, "Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee." And his servant was healed right then. See Matt. 8:5-13;

How many of us today have such faith in the authority of Truth? A blind faith, of course, is not what Christian Science demands, but an understanding trust in the power of Truth as presented in this Science is vital. The power of this Science lies in the fact that it is the law of God, which demonstrates the divine Principle of all being in the healing of sickness and sin. As Mrs. Eddy writes, "This demonstration is based on a true understanding of God and divine Science, which takes away every human belief, and, through the illumination of spiritual understanding, reveals the all-power and ever-presence of good, whence emanate health, harmony, and Life eternal."
