Claiming Our Divine Heritage

Some time ago one student of Christian Science asked another how he should claim his divine inheritance. By way of illustration, the one questioned pointed to the case of some individual who has inherited a fortune, money, securities, and other possessions. How can such a one use it if he has not been informed that these things have been left to him? And being informed, how can he use them until and unless he claims them and makes them his own? He must learn of the inheritance, claim it, and make it his in order to enjoy and use it.

Thus it is in our experience as Christian Scientists. We cannot demonstrate the omnipresence, omnipotence, and omniscience of God for ourselves and others unless and until we accept the truth of being; that is, claim our spiritual heritage as the child of God, created in His likeness, completely, definitely, eternally existing at the standpoint of perfection.
