Fulfilled on earth by heavenly means

A gift that the Science of Christianity provides us, one of vital importance to health, is the way to find fulfillment in our lives. To be fulfilled on earth, but not by earthly means, is the promise of truly Christian living.

Unsatisfied material yearnings, deep personal disappointments, broken hearts, if not met with spiritual understanding, can be seedbeds of disease. Christ, revealing the allness of God and the fullness of His idea, man, lifts human aspirations higher and makes their fulfillment surer. The potential for genuine fulfillment, with its congregate blessings for the whole earth, is enlarged as we heed the Christ, the voice of our heavenly Father communing with us.

Christ Jesus did those things that pleased his Father; he knew what those things were, for he was ever at one with his own Christly nature. And his life is the pattern for the lives of all Christians, the example for all true fulfillment, for substantive accomplishment on earth.
