Resurrection—Spiritualization of Thought

As students of Christian Science study and practice the teachings of their religion, they gain a growing awareness of its efficacy and practicality in their daily affairs. They become more confident that their prayers are answered in the realm of divine Love, and their thoughts are uplifted to see their own completeness as actually ideas of the one omnipotent Mind—poised, satisfied, fearless, and joyous in their freedom from the inharmony a mortal sense of existence attempts to fasten upon them. They claim their spiritual identity as God's children and exercise their God-given dominion.

An awareness of one's spiritual perfection in Science is not gained in a moment. It involves a putting aside of the accumulated impurities of false education, a relinquishing of the belief in a life in matter, and a letting go of the lie that life is only a period of years between birth and death.

As Christian Science is loved and utilized, the question arises, How does one achieve resurrection, or the spiritualization of thought—this change from matter to Spirit? By "casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ," as the Bible states (II Cor. 10:5).
