OUR COURSE HEAVENWARD
Christ Jesus admonished the multitude (Matt. 4:17), "Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand."In this cogent demand the Master pointed to the heavenly objective of every earnest pilgrim on earth and the means of attaining it.
Heaven is the eternal consciousness of perfection, harmony, and goodness. It is not a far-off haven, but it is ever available. It is the atmosphere of God, Spirit, the government by Soul, and is actually within the consciousness of every individual.
One who gives up evil for good finds heaven. He finds health, holiness, harmony. One does not attain perfection while intent on pursuing that which is temporal and unreal. To gain heaven, one must change his course from the contemplation or practice of evil and acknowledge God as the only cause and creator, and man as God's immortal image and likeness. This enlightened understanding of God and man is gained through prayerful study and practice of the precepts introduced by Christ Jesus and unfolded in Christian Science.
