HEARTENING ACCORD WITH GOD

To those who seek inspiration which will hearten them to renewed endeavor, Christian Science points out that all true endeavor is based upon some understanding of the relationship of man to God. We can be awakened to a finer conception of this accord and thus rid ourselves of sin, disease, and death. For example, if one has been seeking to establish a healthy state of body, what he really needs is to establish a healthy state of thought. To do this he must understand the spiritual fact that man is already perfect, for we read in Genesis (1: 27), "God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him."

Mary Baker Eddy tells us on page 591 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" that man is "the compound idea of infinite Spirit: the spiritual image and likened of God; the full representation of Mind." In order to free ourselves from all that is unlike good we must understand and express our true selfhood. Man, who is spiritual, perfect, and eternal, cannot experience imperfect functioning or manifest anything less than good, for the one Mind, which he reflects, functions in harmony, boundlessness, and completeness. Since the divine Mind is perfect, we cannot change it. In order to rid ourselves of depressed or diseased thinking, we must replace, erroneous mortal mind concepts with those which come from perfect divine Principle.
