WILLING AND OBEDIENT

From the June 1949 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Christian Scientists have before them the privilege of acknowledging God's omnipotence, omnipresence, and omniscience in every event of their lives. "If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land" (Isa. 1:19). Willingness to do God's will is the first step towards the fulfillment of this promise. Obedience or submission to His will is the next step, which brings good without measure into our consciousness and thus into our experiences.

Often the results of obedience to divine Love are not what we have humanly outlined; they are even better. God's purpose for His child exceeds all we could ask or think.

Being willing to relinquish material outlining, no matter how promising it many look, and to yield to God's loving purpose brings unlimited good to light. Childlike and implicit trust in our Father-Mother God, the Giver of all good, brings assurance of His tender care for His own and His ability and willingness to supply every need. Man, God's reflection, like a sunbeam reflecting the sun, has an indissoluble connection with his source, the inexhaustible source of all good.
