Our Master said, "Ye shall drink indeed of my cup."

27Jesus stormed sin in its citadels and kept peace with God.  He drank this cup giving thanks, and he said to his followers, "Drink ye all of it," — drink it all, and let

30all drink of it.  He lived the spirit of his prayer, — "Thy kingdom come." Shall we repeat our Lord's Prayer when the heart denies it, refuses to bear the cross and

3Judas that betrays you, and commits suicide. This god- less policy never knows what happiness is, and how it is obtained.

6Jesus did his work, and left his glorious career for our example. On the shore of Gennesaret he tersely re- minded his students of their worldly policy. They had

9suffered, and seen their error. This experience caused them to remember the reiterated warning of their Mas- ter and cast their nets on the right side. When they

12were fit to be blest, they received the blessing. The ultimatum of their human sense of ways and means ought to silence ours. One step away from the direct

16line of divine Science cost them — what? A speedy re- turn under the reign of difficulties, darkness, and unre- quited toil.

18The currents of human nature rush in against the right course; health, happiness, and life flow not into one of their channels. The law of Love saith, "Not my will,

21but Thine, be done," and Christian Science proves that human will is lost in the divine; and Love, the white Christ, is the remunerator.

24If, consciously or unconsciously, one is at work in a wrong direction, who will step forward and open his eyes to see this error? He who is a Christian Scientist,

27who has cast the beam out of his own eye, speaks plainly to the offender and tries to show his errors to him before letting another know it.

30Pitying friends took down from the cross the fainting form of Jesus, and buried it out of their sight. His dis- ciples, who had not yet drunk of his cup, lost sight of
