True Security

We hear much today about security. Laws are enacted for the purpose of ensuring one's security at a certain age, of providing him with money so that he will not have to work; in other words, giving him financial independence. In the maze of conflicting opinions on this subject Christian Science comes to our rescue to enlighten and clarify, for it shows that an individual's true security and independence rest in his understanding of God, in seeing his oneness with God and his infinite protection from all that would limit, fetter, or dismay him.

Webster defines security as, "Freedom from fear, anxiety, or care; confidence of power or safety, hence assurance; certainty." God's love, which enfolds each and every one of His children, provides freedom from fear, anxiety, care of every sort; and an understanding of divine Love is the only sure provision there is against these beliefs.

Mortal belief says that man is born, matures, and then goes through a process of decay ending in death. Christian Science shows how utterly fallacious and limiting is this concept of man, for the first chapter of Genesis states that God made man in His own image. God cannot be born, decay, and die; therefore His image and likeness cannot do so. Man is as changeless, as ageless, as God Himself, for he reflects, expresses, and coexists with God, Life. God is forever providing man spiritually with an abundance of health, supply, activity, joy, and peace. And loving provision is made manifest in human affairs in proportion as our consciousness is spiritualized so that we understand and behold man's Godlike, spiritual nature.
