What God is already doing

God’s creation—His kingdom—is entirely spiritual and good. We couldn’t wish for more! 

This article is part of a series appearing occasionally in the Sentinel, The Christian Science Journal, and The Herald of Christian Science. Each article aims to correct some misconception about Christian Science that would keep us from having the results we so desire as spiritual healers.

In my Christian Science Sunday School class, I had been hearing about God and all the wonderful things recorded in the Bible that God had done for people. I wondered if God’s job was to intervene in people’s lives, sort of like a genie.
