Working—smarter, not just harder

From the March 1991 issue of The Christian Science Journal

It might seem strange if you couldn't really work at your religion, if it was something you chose to "join," and then "attended," so that it became a more or less static aspect of your history, like your family name or your birth date.

Fortunately, it isn't that way. A Christian who is a Scientist feels that God's work is already all it should be—in effect, that His work is totally good. So what is called for is doing our own work and growing spiritually, which makes God and His spiritual creation much more apparent.

People are sometimes surprised to see how continually Christian Scientists work at their religion. Even persecution doesn't have what might be considered a likely result; it ends up deepening spiritual conviction until grounded more solidly on the rock of Christ.
