EVANGELIZING THE HUMAN SELF

After declaring in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" that lack of understanding may keep us from demonstrating absolute Christian Science before the change that we call death takes place, Mary Baker Eddy says (p. 254): "But the human self must be evangelized. This task God demands us to accept lovingly to-day, and to abandon so fast as practical the material, and to work out the spiritual which determines the outward and actual."

Mrs. Eddy divides the task of evangelizing the human self into three parts. We are to accept it lovingly; we are to abandon the material; and we are to work out the spiritual. First of all, there must be the love of God. There must be purity of purpose and desire. The evangelizing of the human self is a regenerative process by which we "ascend into the hill of the Lord" or "stand in his holy place" (Ps. 24:3). We qualify for this ascension by having "clean hands, and a pure heart" (verse 4).
