Adoring God—why it matters

If we wish to demonstrate God’s power and love, we must adore as well as understand our Father-Mother.

Christians often yearn to emulate the life and healing works of Christ Jesus. I know I do. This is primarily because we love God, our Father-Mother, and desire to serve Him by helping and healing those around us, as our Master did. As we strive to be present-day disciples, we endeavor to understand God and to demonstrate God’s healing presence and power, His reliable protection and care. Study of the Bible and the writings of Mary Baker Eddy provides us with everything we need to do this. However, sometimes our best efforts do not avail the healing results we hope to see for ourselves or others. When this happens, we may feel disappointed, discouraged, or even cheated.

Recently, I have come to see that perhaps there is a missing piece in our work of emulating Christ Jesus—one that the Discoverer of Christian Science specifically identifies. Mrs. Eddy writes that “God is to be understood, adored, and demonstrated; . . .” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 472).
