Trust and obey

We gladly welcome your comments on our Forum and Bulletin Board but we do maintain the right to edit and/or take down anything we feel is not in complete accord with pure Christian Science or in any way disrespectful of it.

We also ask that you keep your postings as concise as possible; make two short postings of the long posts or send the lengthy ones for publication in our Magazine or Newsletter. If you quote the Bible, please use The King James Version, as this is what Mrs. Eddy used. Thank you!

    This week’s bible story included some lessons which stood out to me, about the importance of trust. Moses was entrusted to lead the children of Israel and the only way for him to do so correctly, was for him to obey God’s instruction and follow His direction. Each time he was met with a challenging question he turned directly to God for the answer (this was an example of great trust) and as he obeyed, each need was met.

    Putting myself in the place of the children of Israel made me think about situations where I am being led by someone else. It is only in recent years, since beginning to study Christian Science correctly, that I have learned that no matter who is put in place to lead me, a parent, a work supervisor, friend, spouse, practitioner, etc. I am to know that I am ultimately being led by my loving father-mother God and to look to Him continuously, for direction. This lesson is brought to light in the following citations from Paul in 1 Corinthians 11: 1 “Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.” and Mary Baker Eddy in her Message to The Mother Church for 1902 (p. 4), “Follow your Leader, only so far as she follows Christ.”
