PREACHING THE WORD

From the April 1918 issue of The Christian Science Journal


When the message of salvation through repentance was to be sent to Nineveh, the word of the Lord came unto Jonah saying, "Preach unto it the preaching that I bid thee. " The effect of this preaching was a change of heart in those who heard, and every one, from the highest in rank to the humblest in station, engaged in prayer and fasting, and because they turned from sin and with humility sought to be obedient to Principle the impending evil was averted.
