The healing step: from belief to spiritual understanding

From the April 1993 issue of The Christian Science Journal

I discovered recently how rewarding it is to set a goal, in our daily study and prayers, of consistently moving beyond mere belief in God—where thought often settles down too comfortably with familiar words —into spiritual understanding, where healing works are accomplished. Although this certainly takes an effort, particularly in emptying out all the material concerns that would clog thought, spiritual understanding is natural to us.
