From the June 1949 issue of The Christian Science Journal

In the fourteenth chapter of the Gospel of Matthew it is related that when Jesus appeared to his disciples walking on a wind-blown, angry sea, the disciples were troubled. "But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid."

Today Christian Science repeats the Master's comforting words, "Be not afraid," and many are proving in increasing measure through the study of Science that to be fearless brings the promised God-given dominion over all the earth. They are learning that Christ is the manifestation of God appearing to human consciousness and destroying all that is unlike God, good.

Peter was on the ship when Jesus approached, and this proof of dominion by the Master so inspired him that he said to him, "Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water." The answer that Jesus gave to this request is highly significant to men and women everywhere and in all ages. He simply said, "Come."
