Class instruction—when, why, where, with whom?

A Man sitting at his work heard this command, "Follow me." And, according to the Bible, this man, whom we have come to know as the Apostle Matthew, "left all, rose up, and followed him." Luke 5:27, 28. Christians often query themselves, "If Jesus asked me, would I get up, leave all, and follow him?" "Yes" may be the initial answer. But when the question is honestly faced, many have had to admit that they might not.

Our Master came preaching the kingdom of heaven. His words, his life, his healings, exposed to human thought a God that is near, powerful, beneficent. Mary Baker Eddy writes, "The truth uttered and lived by Jesus, who passed on and left to mortals the rich legacy of what he said and did, makes his followers the heirs to his example; but they can neither appreciate nor appropriate his treasures of Truth and Love, until lifted to these by their own growth and experiences." Miscellaneous Writings, p. 165.
