When speaking of God’s children, not the children of men, Jesus said, ‘The kingdom of God is within you;’ that is, Truth and Love reign in the real man, showing that man in God’s image is unfallen and eternal. Jesus beheld in Science the perfect man, who appeared to him where sinning mortal man appears to mortals. In this perfect man the Savior saw God’s own likeness, and this correct view healed the sick.

The harvest truly is plenteous but the labourers are few. Matt. ix. 37.

As individual Christian Scientists we may not all be heads of associations, or pastors, or teachers; but we may all be missionaries, every one of us. True Scientists cannot sit inactive and excuse themselves, by saying that they have no opportunity; if they do, the one talent they have buried will be taken from them. We all know how the Master viewed those who are neither hot nor cold.
We all have opportunities for work. Among our own circle of friends, our neighbors, those with whom we come in contact in our work or business, we can speak of the Truth, and above all strive to live it.
Let not suggested thought come in that we have not yet sufficient understanding. If we use what we have, we will find our one talent becomes two. Remember the promise, that we are not required to take thought what we shall say, for it shall be supplied us in the self-same hour.
Let us not forget the fig tree; to material sense it looked bright, as a living tree should, but when the Master looked for fruit, and found none, it withered away. ”By their fruits ye shall know them.” Then let us prune and trim the thoughts going forth from us that this may be an anniversary year in Science. Let each who is in the liberty of Truth speak to our companions and associates, bring them into our meeting. Let it be a year of work, of energy, of unity, of Love, and before another year such a harvest we shall have, that victory will be ours.
