Not There, but Risen!

To earnest Christians of every age and clime the glorious fact of Christ Jesus' resurrection has brought untold blessing and consolation, comfort for the present, and hope for the future. To students of Christian Science the resurrection means all this, and more, for Christian Science has revealed the full meaning of the demonstration our Master made not only for himself, but for all mankind.

The resurrection of Jesus is more than the overcoming of beliefs of matter as substance, more than the vanquishing of death, more than the divine assurance of the eternality of good. It is the great regenerating truth proclaimed by Paul to the Colossians (Col. 3:3), "For ye are dead, and your life is had with Christ in God." The old, the unreal concept of self, is being dispelled through the knowledge that it has never really existed because it is not of God's creating.

A student of Christian Science was once reminded of this truth when a loved one passed on. The practitioner from whom she asked help sought to turn the student's thought away from the dark shadows which seemed to have been cast over her days. "I know that this experience is unreal," said the student, "but its shadows keep impinging on my consciousness."
