Just observing, or bearing witness to Truth?

We may talk about the supremacy of God, but living in a way that shows we mean it demands something more.

When it comes to spiritual living, there's quite a difference between being a casual observer and being an active witness. As a child growing up in a Protestant Sunday School, I was frequently asked, "Are you a witness to Jesus Christ? Do you accept him as your personal Saviour?" I always said yes because I was genuinely endeavoring to abide by the Christian ideals I believed in. Despite these efforts, I later realized that I had been merely observing Christianity rather than entering in at a far deeper level. I hadn't yet begun to explore and live by the spiritual laws of God that heal when understood and applied. But this early Christian training nurtured in me a desire to seek and know more about Christian healing.

After I found Christian Science, I began to see more of what being a spiritual witness was really all about. I saw that Christian Science reveals God's laws of healing as practiced by Christ Jesus. These laws enforce the government of God, in which all is under the harmony of divine Principle. The practicality of God's law is explained by Mrs. Eddy in Science and Health, which I was studying regularly. I was beginning to see the effects of divine law in my life as I endeavored to put spiritual truth into practice, instead of just talking about it.
