“It is possible, — yea, it is the duty and privilege of every child, man, and woman, — to follow in some degree the example of the Master by the demonstration of Truth and Life, of health and holiness.” (Science and Health, page 37)
We are ready to walk in Jesus’ footsteps. This is an honor that we have and it isn’t something distant or requiring years of study or a transcendent holiness gained through saintly living and rabid religious devotion. The Master taught each of us that our humble desire and the very fact of our nature as children of God, gives us a power to demonstrate all that he practiced.
It is possible for each of us to follow Jesus’ lead in some degree, step by step, thought by thought. Love demands it and Love at the same time makes it so natural for us to comply. Child, man, and woman—those youthful and unlearned or those who are mature and seemingly saturated with false beliefs and bad experiences—are all qualified and privileged to be Christ-like beacons of light.
Never belittle your holiness. It is because God is your Father-Mother, as He was the Master’s, that you are meant to express His intention and equipped to do so. No one is left out of this calling. All must be who God caused him to be, the very expression of His perfect Life and Love, of the Truth that has dawned on human thought to set the world free. Let’s gratefully claim this honor we have today, and walk forth into our world with Jesus as our example and the Christ as the power to heal, bless, and save.
