When speaking of his true selfhood, the Christ, Jesus said (John 14:16), "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." The inseparable unity which exists between God and man, His spiritual image, appears to humanity proportionally as Christ, God's ideal expression, is embraced by individuals. As the sinless spiritual ideal of God is accepted as his own ideal, the individual finds his spiritual identity as the son of God coming to light.

How important then to recognize the ever-presence of Christ. Every correct statement of Christian Science, directly or by implication, presents to mankind some phase of the knowledge of the Christ. On page 332 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, writes: "Christ is the true idea voicing good, the divine message from God to men speaking to the human consciousness. The Christ is incorporeal, spiritual,—yea, the divine image and likeness, dispelling the illusions of the senses; the Way, the Truth, and the Life, healing the sick and casting out evils, destroying sin, disease, and death." In this revealing statement our Leader not only tells us what the Christ is, but shows its nature, its mission, and its restorative and regenerative works when accepted into human consciousness.
