A voice that constantly speaks to us

This article was first printed in the online Heraldo de la Ciencia Cristiana (the Spanish edition of The Christian Science Herald).

The Gospel according to Matthew in the Bible tells us that, shortly after Christ Jesus began his ministry, he talked to the fishermen Simon and Andrew, and then James and John, who, along with their father, were mending their fishing nets. He told them: “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men” (Matt. 4:19). And they instantly left everything behind and followed him.

Just as those fishermen heard Jesus calling out to them, we, too, can be receptive to the voice of the Christ speaking to us, and follow it. Jesus was inseparable from the Christ, the divine message from God to man. And the Christ, as the spiritual manifestation of God, is constantly speaking to our thought to give us the true perspective of the nature of God and our relationship to Him. The Christ shows the path that leads us away from preoccupation with personal concerns to finding satisfaction in the well-being of others.
