"Thy God thy glory"

"THE Lord shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory." Ever since the prophet Isaiah stated this truth of such tremendous import to humanity, it has helped and comforted mankind; but the actual realization of it has sometimes seemed vague and far away,—a thing that might come to fruition only in the beyond, not in this present world. But the veil of material sense is being lifted, and the spiritual truth about God's universe is becoming more apparent; for Christian Science is making plain to all the way to claim the fulfillment of the promise of Isaiah, here and now.

The four concluding words of this verse are especially significant to the Christian Scientist, for he knows that only in the degree that he demonstrates God as his "glory" is he approximating the understanding of Christian Science. One of Webster's definitions of glory is, "The presence of the Divine Being;" and through the study of the synonyms for God which Mrs. Eddy has given in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," we are able to gain a clearer vision of this divine presence. No miner creates the gold he mines; he only uncovers and works the precious lode. So, as we seek only that which is Godlike, do we individually reflect in our lives that spiritual dignity and power which glorifies God through every human experience.
