Our Glorious Task

Many of us who have experienced the healing and regenerating power of Christian Science have sometimes found that the way does not appear so easy now as in the first ardor of our release from sickness and sin, and we have longed to experience again the glory of that first spiritual awakening with its proofs of healing. As we continue our study of Christian Science, we discover that it is not just a remedial agent, but a way of life, and that we cannot remain satisfied with having attained merely a more comfortable sense of material existence, but have we must push on to discover yet more of the truth of spiritual existence which divine Science reveals.

In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 272), our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, speaks of "the spiritualization of thought and Christianization of daily life." It is by these two means that we enter into our God-given heritage of freedom and dominion. We need to spiritualize thought and Christianize daily life, if we would demonstrate Christian Science. This Science reveals the fact that man is, now and always, the perfect image and likeness of God, and therefore spiritual. Human thought must be spiritualized, however, in order to apprehend and demonstrate this spiritual reality.
