OBEDIENCE,—A MIRACLE

From the November 1907 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Since the year of our Lord 1866, during which time Christian Science has been urging its sublime promptings upon the Christian thought of mankind, it has been dispersing, both by the noiseless processes of patient labor and by the hammer-blows of ringing conviction, the tendency of the human mind to hold the wonderful operations of God's law outside the pale of rationality. As the marvels and miracles wrought by Moses, Elijah, and Christ Jesus were projected against the history of the world, it was not the divine design that human judgment should ever render these signs of God's nearness invalid or perpetually inaccessible to comprehension; nevertheless, they have seemed, throughout the slow file of centuries, to stand like cliffs which, rising suddenly out of a weltering waste of sea, offer no harbor to the wind-blown skiff.
