Love's Resurrection

In one of the most solemn asseverations Christ Jesus ever uttered, namely, "I am the resurrection, and the life," he links inseparably the two words, "resurrection" and "life." This calls attention to the fact that proportionately as one takes part in the resurrection out of material beliefs, the immortality of Life is demonstrated.

Christian Science has revolutionized the significance of the word "resurrection" by showing us that resurrection is a continuous mental process. Mary Baker Eddy, in her textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 593), clearly defines it as "spiritualization of thought; a new and higher idea of immortality, or spiritual existence; material belief yielding to spiritual understanding." In the gaining of this "new and higher idea of immortality, or spiritual existence," we must of necessity turn to the life of him who made the above solemn declaration. Christ Jesus' demonstration of Life, culminating in his resurrection, was a perpetually ascending one, thus furnishing proof that the gaining of immortality is purely a mental process. This state of consciousness is attainable through the right understanding of God, as taught in Christian Science, and through faithful obedience to Jesus' precepts.
