NEWNESS OF LIFE

Newness of life! The Bible promises it and the world longs for it! The picturesque figure of the old Spanish explorer Ponce de Leon, who thought to find the fountain of perpetual youth on the shores of the New World, is symbolic of humanity's endless search —a search which has not been satisfied because it has been wrongly directed. To material sense, discerning only its own ephemeral sense of substance, everything wears out and ends; life itself is fleeting and futile. But to spiritual sense, the God-endowed sense which apprehends reality, Spirit is substance and permanence, and Spirit is Life.

The promise of Christian Science that Life is forever at the standpoint of fullness and perfection is no Utopian dream but the revelation of a stupendous spiritual fact, a fact which is ever present and ever operative, a fact which not all the evidence before the material senses can gainsay or reverse. "Life is the everlasting I am, the Being who was and is and shall be, whom nothing can erase," writes Mary Baker Eddy on page 290 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures."
