Injured knee healed

In the Gospel of John, Christ Jesus says to his followers, “If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (8:31, 32).

I remember the first time I was able to demonstrate this biblical promise in my life. I was playing in a game of soccer, and while running for the ball down the sideline, I ran up against the spectator seating, which consisted of old wooden railway sleepers (ties) benched up along the side of the field. I crashed into the sleepers with my knee. It was badly cut, and the pain was excruciating. My friends came to assist me, and I told them I would go off to the changeroom. As I walked off the field, I started thinking to myself what I would do in the changeroom. The answer was, Pray. My life as a Christian Scientist had taught me to turn to the understanding of my true identity, that of a child—a spiritual reflection—of God.
