Me, a Christian Science practitioner?

From the October 2023 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Anyone who has taken Primary class instruction from an authorized teacher of Christian Science is equipped to give metaphysical treatment to those who may ask him or her for help through prayer. I know from past experience that we can expect healing to result from this treatment, because everyone is as perfect as God, our creator. Perfect God can only create perfection, and healing occurs through realizing this divine perfection. Nothing is too big or too small to take to God in prayer. God is Love itself, and Love is a power that never fails.

There are so many instances in the Bible where healing happened. Christ Jesus, the Way-shower, demonstrated how God heals, and taught his method to his disciples. In more recent times, we have examples in the writings and life of Mary Baker Eddy, who discovered Christian Science, proving Jesus’ promise, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father” (John 14:12).

Even though Jesus is no longer physically present, the Christ, Truth, he lived is always with us. And Jesus also promised that the Comforter, or the Holy Ghost, would teach us what we need to know (see John 14:26). Divine Love shows us how to overcome fear, with practical results.
