You may have wondered, as I have, just what more the Apostle Paul could have said in order to convince King Agrippa of the Christ. In describing the dramatic events involving his own conversion, Paul must have spoken with a compelling fervor. And the king's heart must have been touched. "Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian."Acts 26:28. Almost. But not quite.
Yes, I've wondered what more Paul might have conveyed because, perhaps like you, I've shared Christian Science with my fellowman, and I've yearned to see him grasp this promised Comforter. And some have. But others—well, like Agrippa, not quite.
Have you felt this longing, felt a deep wish that the world would more quickly awake to the blessings of this Science of Christianity? Maybe you've invited a neighbor to a lecture, or at work given a copy of the Christian Science Sentinel to a friend, or asked your spouse to read through Science and Health. If your efforts have lighted in someone's thought an initial interest in Science but that interest has dimmed or disappeared, you may want to pray about what more was needed.
