In God's Sight

WE read in the first chapter of Genesis, "God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good." What heavenly vision this unfolds! In the sight of God, the divine, all-seeing Mind, all His ideas are "very good" — perfect, complete, immortal, wholly spiritual. Infinite Mind cannot for an instant lose sight of a single idea, for if this should happen, Mind would not be infinite, but finite and failing. We learn in Christian Science that man is the image or reflection of God. Therefore, as God's reflection, man must see as God sees. In the eternal radiance of reality there is no death, no night, no separation, no loss. Proportionately as these facts are held in thought, they may be realized and proved, here and now.

Commenting upon the vision of St. John in the Apocalypse, Mary Baker Eddy writes on page 573 of the textbook of Christian Science, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures": "The Revelator was on our plane of existence, while yet beholding what the eye cannot see, — that which is invisible to the uninspired thought. This testimony of Holy Writ sustains the fact in Science, that the heavens and earth to one human consciousness, that consciousness which God bestows, are spiritual, while to another, the unillumined human mind, the vision is material."
