Daily Resurrection

Throughout the centuries mankind has regarded the resurrection as having special reference to Christ Jesus' victory over death. In another sense, resurrection is defined as, "A rising again; ... restoration; revival." A dictionary also includes the definition given by the revered Leader of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, on page 593 of her textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures": "Resurrection. Spiritualization of thought; a new and higher idea of immortality, or spiritual existence; material belief yielding to spiritual understanding." Students of Christian Science see in her words a call to the individual to awaken out of the belief of resurrection as an experience which comes to him only after the change called death, and realize that resurrection is a daily necessity in his progress toward heavenly consciousness.

Since, then, resurrection takes place in thought, should one not search his thoughts daily, and strive to discard the dead beliefs and wornout theories that have bound him? The false theology that would consign the sinner to eternal punishment and afflict the saint should disappear before the higher and more spiritual concept of God as Love. This yielding to Truth resurrects the understanding, bringing enlightened vision. Spiritualization of thought through a higher concept of existence as spiritual leads to the knowledge of man's spiritual sonship. This daily overcoming and unfolding is true resurrection.
